Liz Babkin, class of 2012, speaks
Did you know that 1 in 5 youth will experience a mental health condition this year?
Liz Babkin, ISM graduating class of 2012, spoke to all of the high school students about Mental Health. Liz graduated from the University of Minnesota.
Her presentation is called Ending the Silence. This presentation gave students the skills to notice mental health concerns in themselves and their friends and provided them the tools to handle these concerns.
For more resources, look up NAMI Minnesota at www.namihelpsyouth.org and check out the "You Are Not Alone" video which is featured on NAMI's website and is a good starting point resource for youth struggling with or who know someone struggling with mental health conditions.
Thank you Liz for being an advocate of Mental Health issues and coming to speak to our students.
