Teens Talk!
About The Session

An opportunity for teenagers to come together and talk about mental health. We hope to create an environment where no one is judged, dismissed or told what to do. The purpose of this session is for young people to come together and strategize on how to make families, schools and the socio-cultural environment more supportive and sensitive to the stresses faced by teenagers today.
