CBS NEWS - Young people in Minnesota are speaking up about mental health with the goal of stopping the stigma. At a youth cultural healing summit, held at a church in downtown Minneapolis in October, hundreds of people gathered for lessons on healing and resiliency.

"It really was a brainchild of a group of young people who came to us and said ... 'There's so much happening in our communities, whether it's violence, whether it's poverty, whether it's feeling dislocated. Can you help us build a space where we can come together and heal?'" said Marnita Schroedl, who runs the non-profit that co-hosted the summit with the Catalyst Initiative at the Minneapolis Foundation.
