On Friday 1/31/20, Maranacook Community Middle School students participated in a presentation through the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The presentation outlined symptoms of mental health conditions and gave ideas about how to help themselves, friends, or family members who may need support.
The presentation included personal testimony from someone living with a mental health condition and her journey to recovery. The presentation helped students see how mental health is so important for all of us, and there is something we can all do to help ourselves and each other. This supports the district’s mission of being a caring school community.
Thank you to NAMI and all our students for helping to make this our reality!
