World Teen Mental Wellness Day is observed across the globe annually on March 2 to raise awareness for the mental health issues that teenagers face every day. It’s a time to promote mental wellness, determine solutions and raise awareness.
Mental health struggles, especially anxiety and depression, are common in teenagers, including your friends, teammates and classmates. However, findings show that stigma prevents many teens from asking for mental wellness help. Many don’t know the resources available to them within their schools and communities, and too few know how to engage in self-care.
This year, Hamilton County Commission on Women & Girls is asking all Hamilton County high school students to join students around the globe in participating in World Teen Mental Wellness Day on March 2. bi3 is teaming up with the Commission on Women & Girls to provide high school students up to $500 per school to plan, create and lead World Teen Mental Wellness Day activities that engage fellow students.
Develop a plan for your school:
- Reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges and accessing care
- Increase awareness about the mental health resources available to students within your school and communities
- Encourage students to participate in wellness activities
