Stories and Successes
National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day is this week! This awareness day was created more than a ten years ago to shine a light on the importance of caring for every child's mental health. Positive mental health is a vital part of healthy development for adolescents.
JCDPC is contributing to the conversation by hosting an event called "Ballance Act" on May 29th! Dr. Michelle Drouin, researcher and social media expert, is coming to Jay County for the event. Balance Act, hosted by Jay County Community Partners will take place at the Jay Community Center and the John Jay Center for Learning.
The same evening, an adult learning session will be held at Jay County High School in the library at 6:00PM (doors will open at 5:30). The evening event is open to the public and is free of charge.
Dr. Drouin will speak on the influence and addictive nature of social media during both the daytime and evening events. Dr. Drouin is a psychologist, professor, TEDx keynote speaker, and expert witness.
Both events are brought to Jay County by Jay Community Partners* through the Mental Health America Indiana Grant. Special thanks to FCC of Portland for helping sponsor this event.
For more information on either event, or to volunteer, contact Maggie Neal (email@example.com).
