WESTBOROUGH – The Teen Mental Health Initiative will be running a free event on Saturday, May 6, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Westborough High School auditorium.
“Mental Health in Teens: Recognize, Respond and Resolve” will be an interactive workshop for parents and teens. The focus will be on stress and depression, and how parents and teens can recognize and address symptoms of mental health.
It will feature panelists who are experts in the field of psychology and mental health and they will be asked questions that are relevant for both parents and teens and will create important discussion surrounding mental health.
The initiative is a project of the Wholistic Health Alliance Youth Brigade. It is a student-led initiative dedicated to raising awareness on the subject of teenagers’ mental health issues and subsequently taking action to mitigate the occurrence of those issues.
It was founded by students, for students.
Wholistic Health Alliance is a 501(c)3 nationally launched nonprofit organization with the vision of providing a platform for holistic health practitioners to come together under one umbrella, fostering collaborations, building stronger networks and enabling greater synergy with the community.
