Panel #2: special event for young people and those who care about them:

For our generation, mental health issues have become an increasing challenge for us. Especially during this pandemic, many of us feel unmotivated, unproductive, and the pressures are consuming us. Today, we will share ways we are taking action, and offer you ideas you can use to take action in your life to make sure you stay mentally well. With these strategies, we’ll better understand emotions and create possible solutions to help us thrive through this time, and for many years to come.
