San Mateo PAL partners with San Mateo Teen to Raise Awareness about Student Health and Mental Wellness
San Mateo PAL and Stride for Awareness joined together to promote the importance of Student Health and Mental Wellness for our youth. Students are often overwhelmed due to high societal expectations, which often leads to confusion, bad choices, risky behavior, substance abuse, and self-harm as a way of coping. PAL and Stride for Awareness would like to shed light upon this epidemic and encourage dialogue through discussion, education, and involvement in this 5k to provide a positive outlet for our youth.
On Saturday, May 20, from 10:00 am - 12:00 pmjoin us for a FREE speaker session: From Students' Perspectives: A Look at Student Health and Mental Wellness. Rocio Conrnjejo, Nadia Ghaffari and CHC's Jennifer Leydecker will share their insights. Register for the speaker session.
