Allina Health Change to Chill mental health program for teens now available in Spanish

[KARE11 News, September 15, 2021] According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, more than half of Hispanic young adults ages 18 to 25 with serious mental illness may not receive treatment for reasons including language barriers and cultural differences.

As Hispanic Heritage Month officially beings, Allina Health is highlighting a program aiming to change that.

Change to Chill is a virtual resource for teenagers. It's now available in Spanish. The free website helps users identify what is contributing to stress, anxiety and/or depression, and explains various methods to build resilience.

"We actually identified stress in teens as a growing health concern in all of our communities that Allina Health serves," said Susan Nygaard, community health improvement manager for Allina Health.
