NAMI RAMS SUPPORTS MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS MONTH
These past weeks have been difficult for many of us, and at times we may feel discouraged or isolated. We want to remind you that you are not alone and encourage you to connect with other youth who may be having the same thoughts and feelings. Hearing from other youth going through the same things can be helpful in getting us through this. With that in mind, on Tuesday, May 26th at 4pm, please join us on Zoom for “Real Talk: Teens on Mental Health”. This live conversation will be a safe space for youth to discuss mental health and share creative approaches to self-care during this unprecedented time. Join Bring Change to Mind (BC2M) and Directing Change for this special event as youth from all over the country lead conversations around mental health.
How to Join: RSVP on EventBrite to reserve your spot- space is limited. This event is free and for teens and young adults only.
Promote on Instagram: Have you found some creative ways to practice self-care during these difficult times? It’s time for some Real Talk: Teens on Mental Health. Join youth from all over the country from 4 pm – 5 pm on May 26 for conversations about mental health.
