Mental Check Ups is a five week program that will be offered to the Charles Herbert Flowers high school community that aims to supply students with the new skills and ideas to practice healthy coping mechanisms. The program seeks to promote a positive message about fostering healthy mental health practices for our youth. This program is an attempt to deter students from seeking drugs and alcohol to cope with everyday life and difficulties that they will encounter. This Mental Check Ups program will work as a learning space and resource for the high school community to achieve a healthier mind and self. The goal is to have participating students leave the space feeling confident in their abilities to handle stressful situations in healthy and effective ways.
