Why Speak Up?
In the U.S., 1 in 5 adults, 1 in 6 youth aged 6-17, and 1 in 3 young adults aged 18-25 experience a mental illness each year.
50% of all lifetime mental illness begins by age 14, 75% by age 24.
the average delay between onset of mental illness symptoms and treatment is 11 years.
Target USA CUP will be combining awareness, education, and our community, to create an overall perception that it is ok to not be ok. It is our goal to end the stigma of athletes being too tough to talk about their mental health.
Speak Up to your parents, Speak Up to your teammates, Speak Up to your coaches, and Speak Up at Target USA CUP.
You are not alone.
