Teens empowered to tackle taboo subjects

My niece, Aurora, called me and asked about how to start a mental wellness club at her school in upstate New York after a NAMI group visited. My niece rocks and she is the best. That from an unbiased aunt. I shared this post and April’s idea she had implemented for Godwin. And look what she did! Is this awesome or what?

What if inclusion went viral? I’ll take one at time for now but April and I are working on a Mental Wellness Guide for Schools. So if any teens or adults have more ideas, share them here! And let’s get this party started.
