This virtual, mental health and resilience program, for grades 8 to 10, is part of the Thriving Schools Resilience in School Environments (RISE) initiative. The program helps students normalize the conversation about mental health, break down the stigma associated with anxiety, depression, and anger, and lets them know they are not alone.
Ghosted tells the story of 4 students as they navigate school, their home life, and changing friendships. After seeking support from the school counselor, the group comes together to create a community where their mental health challenges and their diverse identities are accepted.
Through this program, students learn to:
- Combat stigma by normalizing mental health challenges
- Develop skills to talk about stress, anxiety, depression, and suicide prevention
- Identify coping strategies to build resilience
- Access resources for help
