At East High School the National Mental Health & Mental Fitness Summit in July 2019 brought together leaders in government, business, healthcare, education, policy makers, spiritual traditions as well as members of the community to share evidenced based best practices to support non-violence in all of these arenas. Hosted in the 20th year following the Columbine HS school shooting, when reflection on this tragedy and all the tragedies that followed was front and center, to assess what we know now that will reverse the trend.
“More than 344,000 students have experienced gun violence at school since Columbine”,
Our society requires not just an awareness of mental illness, but a platform to proactively address people’s mental wellness.
We need tools and strategies for effective communication, managing emotions and distressing situations. The best thing we can do is be proactive about mental health and well-being.
We’re all on this journey together. Let’s remind each other that we don’t have to walk alone.
Love and Blessings,
