Mental Health Series: Introduction
What is the mental health series?
This coming week, The Central Trend will be publishing daily articles about mental health. Topics will range from the stigma surrounding mental health disorders and its place in our school to personal experiences from students.
Why are we doing this?
Mental health is a sensitive subject for a lot of people. By bringing attention to it, we hope to raise awareness and inform students of the resources that are there to help them. We also hope to remind students who are suffering from any sort of mental health disorder that they are not alone and that there are always people who are willing to talk to them.
What stories can you expect?
Over the course of the week, you can expect a column about the stigma surrounding mental health, a feature about mental health in high school students and at our school, a Q&A with a professional from Pine Rest Mental Health Services, an editorial about how the school is handling mental health, and a final column to conclude this series.
Stay tuned for daily updates!
