    To help young adults navigate through COVID an social isolation CBS is inviting young adults aged 18-24 to join a free, Here 4 U online peer support session between February 8-12, 2021. Young adults are welcome to invite one of their friends or loved ones between the ages of 18-24 to join as well.

    There will also be sessions focused on support African-American young adults who may be experiencing an even greater set of challenges, given the systemic racism and injustice that continues to threaten and other vulnerable populations, such as the LGBTQ+ community, including a special session on February 11, 2pm-3pm ET, featuring an expert from The Trevor Project, the world's largest suicide prevention and crisis intervention organization for LGBTQ+ youth.

    Here 4 U is a program that builds on the success and momentum of our Time for Care initiative which provides much needed mental health resources and education to young adults. Here 4 U also encourages young adults to seek the mental health support they need in order to understand and cope with depression, stress, anxiety, isolation, and suicidal ideation.

    Please see the attached communications toolkit to help share this resource.
