Mental Health in Young Adult Literature

The importance of stories takes on added significance when we look at how mental health issues are depicted in young adult novels. 1 in 5 teens will be diagnosed with some type of mental health issue; seeing their stories told and knowing they’re not alone can be powerful. These narratives, combined with personal stories of authors and other teen advocates, are helping remove some of the stigma and isolation that can come with this topic.
