Mental Health: Anxiety and Depression

1 in 5 young adults has a diagnosable mental health condition; 50% of these begin by age 14. In this episode, we speak with Gianna, a junior in high school who has lived experience of depression, anxiety and a suicide attempt. She shared her story with us to help start a conversation and bring to light the realities so many of her peers face, but might be too afraid to talk about.

Also joining us is Dr. Shashank Joshi, a child and adolescent psychiatrist at Stanford University Medical Center.
