I agree that going to therapists has helped many kids and adults. Now, kids are resilient, and can often solve problems on their own, but I wouldn't think that kids should endure major psychological distress for months on end just for the heck of it. Now, I love me some therapy, but I think that we should also move mental health promotion activities, such as art, groups where people can bond and socialize, and other things into the wider community.
Therapists can help people recover, but it's the everyday mental health promotion that keeps you well.
