KTAR News and ABC15 are joining forces for a two-hour roundtable discussion on mental health and behavioral challenges among teenagers and young adults in the Valley. This collaboration comes after extensive coverage of issues such as teen violence and bullying in the East Valley.

The first hour of the roundtable will focus on teen violence, which has become increasingly prevalent in recent years. The tragic death of Preston Lord has brought attention to this issue, and the panelists will address questions and topics related to teen violence and mental health at teenviolence@abc15.com before the event.

In the second hour, the discussion will shift to primary issues affecting young people, including mental health, bullying, and threats on social media. The talk will also explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected teenagers’ coping mechanisms. To watch the roundtable, tune in from 12pm to 2pm on Wednesday via the ABC15 app on Roku, Amazon Fire Stick or other streaming devices. The event will also be available to stream on ABC15.com, the ABC15 YouTube page, and the ABC15 mobile app. This roundtable is part of KTAR’s week-long “Youth on the Edge” series that focuses on teen violence topics affecting our community. If you have a tip regarding teen violence in the Valley, email us at teenviolence@abc15.com.
