Unique way one local school is supporting mental health

Mental health still has such a stigma and it’s something teens often don’t feel comfortable discussing.

But it may not be because they don’t want to. They just don’t know how or where to do it.

One of the teachers said it’s emotional for the students but it’s definitely helping.

You’ll see why they hope other schools will give it a try, too.
