Gaps in the system that provide for youths’ mental well-being harm individual young people and can also send dangerous messages to those in need, who may conclude that there is no pathway to wellness. Lee’s Summit CARES catalyzes community organizations and businesses to elevate the issue of youth mental well-being so that teens and families know they are not alone.
