Teen Mental Health

Forum on Teen Mental Health

L.E.E.P To College hosted a Roundtable Meeting on Thursday, July 12th at the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. The Roundtable Meeting on Teen Mental Health brought together a diverse group of leaders that represented the education community, health industry, youth services, faith-based organizations and many others, to talk about issues affecting local youth, to learn more about existing programs, and to identify ways that collaborative efforts can support and help those "on the ground."


Making Something B.I.G., part of the Teen Mental Health Roundtable Series, is a service project of the L.E.E.P To College Foundation, Inc. We are looking for teens to be involved in the conversation on Friday, August 3rd, from 6:30p.m.-8:30p.m. If you are a teen, 13 to 19, please RSVP today. Light refreshments will be served, along with a good discussion. Your contribution to this project will help create an impactful Teen Mental Health Summit, October 6, 2018.
