Bella Nyman has struggled with her mental health since age 7, when she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and anxiety.
Nyman said she was afraid to tell her parents she had thoughts of suicide. Looking back, a mental health screening might have helped her to stop hiding her struggles from adults and peers, she said.
"Hard things don't get better if we don't talk about them," Nyman said.
