    Let's Talk about Mental Health.  Student's voice is often overlooked! The purpose of this research study is to gain student voice in the services provided in their schools. It is an opportunity to provide information about what you need for support. If you are willing to spend an hour on zoom and be interviewed about mental health, contact Elena Canavor at ecanavor@antioch.edu(4/2)


    This spring, Active Minds is selecting 100 high school mental health advocates to help establish a school culture of caring and support for BIPOC and LGBTQ+ students nationwide through our NEW Your Voice Is Your Power Ambassador program. BIPOC youth are more likely to be impacted by the pandemic, police violence and longstanding racial discrimination. Similarly, LGBTQ+ youth are more likely to experience discrimination, a lack of social support and limited access to appropriate health care, all of which impact mental health. Applicants are selected on a rolling basis. (4/2)
