Ending The Silence
The holiday season is upon us! While this is normally a time for fellowship and celebration, this time of year presents a lot of stressful challenges. For youth and teens who struggle with their mental health, these challenges and stressors can be overwhelming, making it truly difficult to enjoy life during this time of year. This is why we wish to present Ending The Silence around the holidays so youth and families feel empowered to discuss their mental health needs!
What is Ending the Silence?
What will I learn?
This presentation seeks to answer the following questions: What exactly IS mental health? How does it relate to our overall health? How do I find help or help a friend? What resources are available in my school or my community? How common are mental health disorders? What are some healthy coping skills to help when times get tough?
Who can attend?
This presentation is great for students (14 and up) and family members who wish to know more about mental health. The information is helpful for anyone who wants to help end the silence and raise mental health awareness.
