- Oct. 6 – The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly exacerbated the mental health crisis for many children in the United States, and suicide is the second leading cause of death for young people age 10-24. Congresswoman Lauren Underwood (IL-14) introduced new legislation to address the alarming rates of suicide among children and young adults by ensuring health care providers have adequate training and resources to identify and treat mental health issues. Please join us to hear more about this legislation and how pediatric-focused APRNs can help advocate for children and families to address this growing issue.
