In the article “Using ‘Remote’ Training and Coaching to Increase Providers’ Skills for

Working Effectively with Older Youth and Young Adults with Serious Mental Health

Conditions” by Janet S. Walker and Caitlin Baird, the main purpose was demonstrate that

it is possible to offer people necessary mental treatment at a cost that is manageable. This

article speaks about how challenging it can be to implement programs to improve mental

health due to the high cost of training and other factors. Since the programs are

beneficial, but the cost is too high, this article informs the reader of a program that would

cut the cost of training by offering an online training that is much cheaper and remain

productive. The program has been a success, as participants have been satisfied with their

training and their skills have increased according to subjective assessments and expert

ratings. The purpose of this article is display that there is a way to cost efficiently

implement a mental health program so that those who need help can receive it. The

audience of this article is the people who want to implement similar programs in order to

help those in need. Since this was written in recently in May 2019, the high rate of mental

health issues and suicide rates make this piece and its contents very relevant and worth

reading for many people. Since this article came from a database that offers only credible

sources and the source focuses on the health of youth, I am sure that this is credible and

useful information. I will use this source in my paper as demonstration that as rates of

mental health issues and suicide increase, the awareness and desire to help increases as

well.

Guardian News and Media, 15 May 2018, www.theguardian.com/science/brain-

flapping/2018/may/15/mental-health-awareness-is-great-but-action-is-essential.

The main point of the article “Mental Health: Awareness Is Great, but Action Is

Essential” by Dean Burnett is that although mental health awareness is very beneficial,

action is still necessary to make a lasting difference. This article is about how mental

health awareness has become more common. Burnett speaks about how mental health

awareness help break the stigma that is associated with mental health issues. Despite this,

awareness alone will not solve the problem because people struggling with these issues

need help and guidance. Burnett wrote this article in order to persuade people to do more

than just be aware, and to instead truly help people. The audience of this article is people

who want to help or want to make a difference. This article was written in May 2018,

meaning that mental health awareness was popular, but action was still required to help
Baarlaer 3

those in need. The writer of this article, Dean Burnett, is a doctor of neuroscience and is

credible on this topic. This article was written in May of 2018, making it current and

relevant. I will use this source in my research paper in order to show that persuading

people to take action and help fight mental health issues is challenging. Although there is

an abundance of awareness on the issues, it still often times requires a tragedy to occur

for action to be taken. This source helps prove this to be true as well as persuades reader

to help people who need it.

Herald , 13 Dec. 2018, Hope Squads being piloted in colleges to help combat suicide.

colleges-to-help-combat-suicide/article_f7ad903e-7968-5cf4-8c07-5ca25cbc2661.html

The main point of “Hope Squads Being Piloted in Colleges to Combat Suicide” by Braley

Dodson is to demonstrate that programs are being implemented in certain states to help

children, teenagers, and young adults with their mental health issues, and that these

programs are becoming more helpful and popular. “Hope Squad” programs train students

to recognize and understand warning signs of depression or suicide in their peers. This

has become quite popular in Utah, as “Hope Squads” are in half of their secondary

schools and twenty percent of their elementary schools. This program has trained fifty

thousand people on how to identify when there is an issue and have helped two thousand

five hundred people in need. The authors purpose of writing this news story is to inform

people that positive strides have been made in resolving the issue of mental health and

suicide in children and teenagers. This piece was written in December of 2018, meaning

that the rise of “Hope Squads” were just beginning. Because of this, they most likely
Baarlaer 4

reported about Utah’s programs because they were well established. Braley Dodson is a

news story writer for the Daily Herald. Dodson focuses on health and education, meaning

that she is fit to write about this topic. Also, the Daily Herald is an established and well-

known news source, making this article credible. I will include this source in my research

paper as an example of the actions that are being taken to combat this issue. As this issue

has become more important and awareness has risen, this is one of the main actions that

have been taken all over the country.

The main purpose of “Evaluating a Student-Led Mental Health Awareness Campaign” by

Elisa Geiss and Dominique Giroux is to present the information and proof that

implementing programs and raising awareness of mental health issues will decrease self

stigma associated with seeking help for these issues. This article speaks about a study that

was performed on two hundred four undergraduate students at a college in October 2017.

They held an on campus mental health awareness campaign that included education and

activities related to these issues. Researchers measured the undergraduate’s attitude and

self stigma before and after the week long campaign using the Self Stigma of Seeking

Help Scale, which indicated a decrease of self stigma after the week long campaign. The

purpose of this article is to prove that these mental health awareness does make a
Baarlaer 5

beneficial difference. The audience of this article is people who want a better

understanding of how effective mental health awareness campaigns are. Since mental

health is such an important issue, similar campaigns have become popular for high

schools and colleges. This article proves that such campaigns are worth it. The authors of

this source, Geiss and Giroux are both writers for the Psi Chi Journal of Psychological

Research. This study was also done in October 2017, making it somewhat current. Since

this source comes from a psychology journal, was found from a database, and is current,

this source is credible. I will use this source in my research paper in order to prove that

both awareness and action are necessary to help people through mental health issues.

With the increase of mental health issues and suicide rates for teenagers and college

students, high schools and colleges are looking for ways to help their students. This

article offers an effective way to combat these issues.

The source titled “Prevalence, Treatment, and the Correlates of Common Mental

Disorders in the Mid 2010′s in Japan: The Results of the World Mental Health Japan 2nd

Survey” by multiple authors displays the consistency of Japan’s mental health issues over

the last decade in order to show a discrepancy between mental health issues in Japan
Baarlaer 6

compared to Western countries such as the United States. In 2013-2015, the World

Mental Health Japan gave their second national survey since 2002-2006. Conclusions

have shown a lesser rate of mental health issues in Japan than in western countries, and

have shown that the rate of mental health issues have been stable in the past decade. The

purpose of this article is to exemplify the difference culture can make on mental health.

The audience for this article are people who want to better understand the discrepancy

between mental health issues in different countries, and particularly why it is so bad in

the United States. This article was written by a series of eight authors, all of which are

credible because the piece was found from a secure database. It was written in December

2018, making it relevant, and it is from a journal called “Journal of Affective Disorders”,

which focuses on mental health. I will use this source in my research paper in order to

demonstrate that mental health issues are a larger issue in the United States than in other

countries. This source will help me prove point and breakdown why this is.

Santos, Maria. “Is Mental Illness on the Rise, or Does It Just Seem That Way?” Verily, 15 Oct.

2015, verilymag.com/2015/10/mental-health-issues-on-the-rise-awareness.

The main point of the article “Is Mental Illness on the Rise, or Does It Just Seem That

Way” by Maria Santos is that mental illness is being over diagnosed. This article speaks

about how lead over diagnosis of mental illness leads to people who do not need help

receiving it and those who do need help not receiving it. Since mental illness is nearly

undefinable, it can be challenging to identify when symptoms are hinting at mental illness

or if they are due to other problems such as grieving. The use of antidepressants have

increased four hundred percent from 1988 to 2011, but since antidepressants are used to

treat illnesses other than depression, it is unclear how much depression has truly risen.
Baarlaer 7

The purpose of this article is to inform readers how challenging of an issue mental illness

is. There are a lot of unknown factors that come with this topic. This article was written

in 2015, when this epidemic was still on the rise. People did not understand all of the

unknown factors involved in mental illness, which may have been the driving purpose for

writing this article. The author of this article is Maria Santos. Although I was unable to

find any information on the writer, I was able to confirm all of the information in the

article with the sources that were provided. Verily is also an established and trustworthy

magazine. I plan to use this source in my research paper to show how much the levels of

mental illness rose in a short amount of time. Also, I will use it to show how important it

is to be make correct diagnoses and ensure that the people who need help receive it,

because this article speaks about how that does not happen often times.

Welch, Ashley. “What's Behind the Rise in Youth Suicides?” CBS News, CBS Interactive, 21

Nov. 2017, www.cbsnews.com/news/suicide-youth-teens-whats-behind-rise/.

The main point of the article “What’s Behind the Rise in Youth Suicides” by Ashley

Welch is that youth suicide has risen and become a real issue, most likely due to the

popularity of smartphones. Suicide is now the third leading cause of death for young

people. Over the last decade, the number of children admitted into hospitals for thoughts

of suicide or self harm have more than doubled. Smartphones seem to be mainly to blame

for this rise due to the sleep deprivation that phones may cause and social media and

cyber-bullying. With the use of smartphones increasing, it seems mental health issues

have increases as well. The purpose of this article is to point out that there is a major

problem with youth suicides and mental health issues. Another purpose of this article is

to point out a probable cause of these issues so that parents or other authority figures can
Baarlaer 8

help monitor these issues. This article was written in November 2017, a time in which

smartphone usage and mental health issues both became problematic for youths. For this

reason, the author may have written this article with intentions of persuading readers to

help reduce these issues. The author of this article, Ashley Welch, is a writer for CBS that

focuses on health. This topic is within her expertise and CBS is an established and trusted

new site. All of the information within this article has a source. Lastly, this article is from

November of 2017, making it current. For these reasons this article and author are both

credible. I am going to use this source in my research paper as a way to introduce the

issue and prove that it has become a major problem for young people.
