Involving the Student Voice: Quotes and Video from SMSS 2018 Teen Panel on Mental Health, Suicide Prevention, and Social Media

March 14, 2018

An important and often overlooked part of this effort is the teenagers themselves. We will never know how to best help young people until we take time to listen to them carefully and involve them in creating solutions. We did that at SMSS, and learned a lot from the teen panel that included high school students Danny, Phillip, Emma, and Nadia.
