About this event
Content warning: Suicide, mental health
For Mental Health Month, Rebecca Laffar-Smith shares her lived experience of mental illness. She talks about how it inspires and informs her novels, and why it’s vital we are open and proactive about mental health in teenagers and young adults.
Join us for an afternoon with Rebecca, to explore how you can understand mental health, learn the warning signs that someone may need help, and know where to go for support.
In a high school classroom, four students are experiencing serious mental health challenges.
Two may be considering suicide.
In fact, 75% of mental health conditions begin before the age of 25.
That’s why it’s important young adults understand mental health, learn the warning signs that they may need help, and know where to go for support.
