Mental Health Education Programs
A survey of 75,000 teens in PA found that they do not feel supported or protected in their school environment. Students report that they are not comfortable discussing issues related to mental health. Minding Your Mind student presentations help students learn to recognize the warning signs of mental illness in themselves and their friends. They teach students that mental health issues and illnesses are common and treatable. Our programs aim to reduce stigma by promoting awareness about the prevalence of mental health disorders and the effectiveness of seeking help. The ultimate goal is to create a supportive environment in schools where students feel comfortable speaking up and asking for help.
