Reported and produced by: Lauren Delgado, 16 Mental health is an important issue in many teenagers' lives.  Suicide is the third leading cause of death for 10 to 24 year-olds.  Of these adolescents who committed suicide, 90% had a known mental health issues. About 20% of people aged 13 to 18 have a diagnosable mental disorder, that's one in every five teens.  One of the teens included in this 20% is my nineteen year-old sister, Kaitlyn. She's a real example of someone affected by a mental illness. In this interview my sister shares her experiences from her many hospitalizations and diagnoses and how she coped with it all.
