This month TeenzTalk.org, a mental health platform created by youth for youth, interviews Maya, a member of CHC’s Teen Wellness Committee.

 Maya  joined the CHC Teen Wellness Committee in the fall of 2017 after having witnessed the effects of mental illness on several of her friends, which spurred her interest to learn more about mental illness in teens and become an advocate and voice for them.  In the interview, Maya talks about the goals of the TWC and discusses perhaps the most ambitious project the TWC has taken on to date—producing  Just a Thought: Uncensored Narratives on Teen Mental Health—a book that tells the story of mental health through the eyes of teens.

The TeenzTalk’s blog amplifies youth stories and perspectives on topics including personal challenges, self-care practices, initiatives in their community, and more. Read Maya’s full interview in the post, “Youth Involvement in the Community: CHC’s Teen Wellness Committee.
