How You Can be an Advocate for Student Mental Health in Your Community!
On Wednesday, March 7th a group of United Way Emerging Leaders along with members of the community joined a group of dynamic panelists to learn more about the topic of student mental health within Cass and Clay counties.
One of the biggest takeaways from this event was that YOU as a community member have the power to make change in the area of student mental health, and here is how you can do it:
1. Become an informed advocate and share what you learn with others!
The topic of mental health is complex and often misunderstood. Before we as a community can find solutions to provide assistance in this arena, we must first seek to understand it.
• If you would like to learn more about the topic of student mental health, you can watch videos from the panel discussion on the United Way of Cass-Clay YouTube Channel HERE!
• You can learn more about Adverse Childhood Experience and its impact on student mental health HERE!
2. Get involved!
• Become a mentor—you never know, one interaction could be the catalyst to change someone’s path. This can be done by reaching out to local schools or mentorship programs to inquire if they have any current needs.
• Be observant—when you are aware of the children and people around you, you may notice signs that someone is in need of support. It only takes one person to speak up and change a life.
3. Contact your local officials!
Let your State and City officials know if this is an important topic to you! You can find your local elected officials by using the links below:
• Minnesota “Who Represents Me?”
o Includes both MN and US House of Representatives and Senate Members
• North Dakota “Find My Legislators”
o Includes ND House of Representatives and Senate Members
• North Dakota US Senate and House of Representatives
• If you would like to find your elected city officials and information on upcoming local elections, you can do so by going to your city’s website.
