This spring the Upper
Merrimack Valley Public Health Coalition invited the UMV MRC to
accept $1000 in excess funding, to carry out a project that we
wished to propose, as long as we met two criteria:
1. The project had
to benefit the entire seven-community region.
2. All funds had to
be spent and activities completed by June 30, 2018.
MRC staff identified
mental health as an area that could especially benefit
from MRC involvement. We shared the concept with a subset of members
who have special training in this area for their ideas. One of
our psychologists advised us to host a forum that addresses mental
health concerns in our young people.
Therefore, we are pleased
to announce our forum to be held on June 14, entitled "Saving
Our Teens: Crisis Mental Health and the Next Generation."
Details are on this
flyer. Please invite anyone you know who may be interested
to sign up. Advance registration is greatly appreciated though
