It is estimated that up to 20% of adolescents globally experience mental health conditions, yet these remain underdiagnosed and undertreated.
More than 1.1 million adolescents aged 10-19 years died in 2016, over 3000 every day, mostly from preventable or treatable causes.
Globally, there are 44 births per 1000 to girls aged 15 to 19 per year.
Two years ago our daughter was at her lowest. As parents it was our worst nightmare. With her service dog and the work you have done with her, It’s been several months now since Kim has had a meltdown in a store. I share this with you because you have been such a huge part of this journey and success with us. Thank you so much for all of your support.
You are kind, strong, and a warmhearted person who I have come to know and love. Having you as my physician helped me mend my physical and emotional well-being and you helped me to strive to do great things. Offering to be my mentor and going above and beyond, was the greatest gift. You are an astounding human being. Thank you for everything.
Working with you has been a breath of fresh air. The way you care for your patients is like none other. I have worked with many physicians, but working with you has been a blessing. I have watched you change lives from teens to parents. I am looking forward to watching you continue to do so.
Thanks for your question!
