Mental Health and Wellness 101

Join us for a community conversation…

May 15, 2019 at 6:30PM-8:00PM
Ballston Spa High School Auditorium

Mental Health and Wellness 101 presents an opportunity to reframe the conversation about mental health to an understanding that we ALL have mental health; it is not just the presence or absence of an illness.  Our discussion will include:

  • An understanding of mental health as an integral part of overall health and a continuum of wellness.
  • A brief overview of prevalence of youth mental health problems.
  • The effects of mental illness on learning and student behaviors.
  • Signs and symptoms, and risk and protective factors.
  • The promotion of coping strategies, help-seeking behaviors and the concept of recovery.

Presented by staff from the Mental Health Association in New York State, Inc.
