About 20 people today, like teenagers and their parents, spent Wednesday evening speaking about mental overall health and methods to deal with conflict at the second session of the Teen Mental Well being Verify-In. This occasion was held by the Girls Dig Deeper Initiative (GDDI) and Macon Mental Well being Matters (MMHM) at the Rosa Jackson Recreation Center.
“We talked about how we are feeling, what mental overall health indicates to us, indicators and symptoms of prime mental overall health diagnoses and how to recognize them,” mentioned GDDI Founder Najiva Timothee. “Everyone in the space was engaged—listening, taking notes and asking concerns.”
MMHM offered facts about resolving conflict, meditation, relaxation, and grounding procedures for anxiousness prevention. Teens also discovered about unique mental overall health challenges and how to cope with them.
“Even although we are closing out Might for Mental Well being Month, I encourage our youth and households to continue to prioritize their mental overall health and wellness on a every day basis,” mentioned Timothee.
