MENTAL HEALTH

The PTSA is working with school and community partners to bring many mental health-related programs
to you this year. We’re calling our effort Mt. Hebron CONNECT: Caring for Others is Nice & Needed.
Everyone Come Together. Whether caused by school pressures or not, our students’ mental health
affects their school experience. In the building, we have a school psychologist, nursing staff, and many
others who are part of a Student Support Team (SST) ready to assist.

  • “Screenagers: The Next Chapter” is about helping young people thrive in our screen and stress-filled
    world. Filmmaker and physician Delaney Ruston uses a personal lens and professional eye to help
    parents flip the script on stress, anxiety, and depression. We follow Delaney as she suddenly finds
    herself at a loss on how to help her own teens as they struggle with their emotional wellbeing. Ruston sets out to uncover how we understand these challenges in our current screen-filled society. And how we as parents and schools empower teens with skills to overcome mental health challenges and build emotional agility, communication savvy, and stress resilience.
