Mental Health Awareness for Youth: Young Adult Speaker Presentation

Minding Your Mind’s evidence-based program features young adults who have experienced a mental health crisis and are now living successful and productive lives. Through professionally-crafted presentations that challenge negative stereotypes, they share their stories of hope and recovery, raising awareness and encouraging students to reach out for help. Students also learn the signs and symptoms of mental health issues, negative versus positive coping skills, the similarities between mental health and physical illness, the language and skills needed to have a conversation about mental health and how to create a supportive school environment. This workshop is presented by Minding Your Mind (MYM).

MPY members, districts and other entities may receive up to 5 FREE in-service workshops each school year.
