    Comments: As someone with mental health issues I see the lack of help that really is out there. As someone who speaks out professionally on these issues, I have to encourage other young adults to seek help that simply is not there. Most mental illness becomes prominent between 16 and 21, which is precisely the age gap where people are no longer on the youth side, but also not yet adults. There is no peer group of support even if they manage to get on one side or the other. Something needs to change.
