Just a Thought: Uncensored Narratives on Teen Mental Health

In June, CHC and the Teen Wellness Committee hosted a book launch party to celebrate the release of Just a Thought: Uncensored Narratives on Teen Mental Health. The book is the latest in a series of targeted projects to increase awareness of mental health issues among teens.

Just a Thought is a powerful collection of quotes, narratives and helpful tips taken directly from hundreds of teens surveyed by CHC’s Teen Wellness Committee. The book sheds light on the mental health struggles teens face in high school and is divided into four sections to address different audiences: To Friends, To Parents, To Educators, To Me. The beautiful and poignant artwork throughout was designed by local illustrator Gemma Correll. For more information, email justathought@chconline.org.

The CHC Teen Wellness Committee (TWC) is a group of teens from public and independent high schools throughout San Mateo and Santa Clara Counties who are committed to taking action to remove stigma around teen mental health and help their peers.

Other recent projects include the Teen Wellness Conference (in partnership with TeenzTalk), community education panels on teen mental health and the “Speak Mindfully” campaign.

Students in grades 9-12 who are interested in applying to become part of the TWC should contact Christine Wang at cwang@chconline.org.
