In conjunction with SpreadHope ICT 2023 HopeNet is committed to providing youth mental health resources to our community.
“Every child’s path to adulthood—reaching developmental and emotional milestones, learning healthy social skills, and dealing with problems—is different and difficult. Many face added challenges along the way, often beyond their control. There’s no map, and the road is never straight. But the challenges today’s generation of young people face are unprecedented and uniquely hard to navigate. And the effect these challenges have had on their mental health is devastating.”
“Children do not just learn to ride a bike one day. They start with training wheels, with a parent running alongside them, cheering them on. The wheels eventually come off as they gradually learn the skill of riding. The same is true of technology; kids need to be surrounded by support, and with that support, they will progressively fall away as they develop the skills necessary to function in this digital age.
