The Crisis Cast

Nov 22, 2023

This year at Thanksgiving, we are grateful for the dedication of those compelled to change the lives of young people. Dr. Tasha Green Cruzat is leading solutions to our youth mental health crisis. Among the most staggering statistics is 30% of female students nationally reported seriously considering attempting suicide in the past 12 months.

Dr. Cruzat, a U.S. Navy veteran, is President of Children’s Advocates for Change and shares a vision for getting our kids better access to mental health care. In this episode of the Crisis Cast, Lissa & Thom push to learn what's driving the shortage in youth psychiatry and psychology. Plus, we ask the question -- is there enough emotional IQ in our culture to produce change?
