Program urges parents, peers to steer youths to help
“You don’t have to know what’s wrong. You just have to know it’s not right.”
That’s the message of a new local campaign aiming to better connect young people with community resources for mental health and wellness.
The campaign kicked off Tuesday with around 70 community members standing on street corners downtown and elsewhere in Helena carrying signs bearing the message.
Youth Connections Coalition, a program of the Helena Public Schools that works with schools and community members to reduce substance abuse and violence as well as provide social, emotional and mental suppport to youth in Helena, is sponsoring the campaign.
