ABC15 is partnering with KTAR News to host a roundtable discussion focused on mental health and behavior challenges among Valley teens and young adults. This discussion comes in response to increased coverage of teen violence and bullying in the East Valley over recent months. The two-hour roundtable will feature KTAR’s The Chris and Joe Show, along with ABC15’s Melissa Blasius, Ashley Holden, and Nicole Grigg.

The first hour of the roundtable will delve into the topic of teen violence over the past several years, which has gained more attention following the tragic death of Preston Lord. If you have questions or topics you would like the roundtable members to address regarding teen violence and mental health, you can email them at teenviolence@abc15.com before the event starts.

In the second hour of the roundtable, the focus will shift to discussing the primary issues impacting youth today, including mental health, bullying, and social media threats. The discussion will also explore how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected teens and their ability to navigate external stressors.

You can tune in to watch the roundtable from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. on Wednesday on the ABC15 app on your Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, or other streaming devices. Additionally, the roundtable will be available for streaming on ABC15.com, the ABC15 YouTube page, and the ABC15 mobile app. This roundtable is part of KTAR’s week-long “Youth on Edge” series, which focuses on teen violence topics impacting the community.
