Everyday Mental Health with Will Heininger
September is National Suicide Prevention and Awareness month. Please join us for a free program geared towards parents and students.

Will has shared his story from coast to coast with over 100,000 people. “I empower people to take control of their own mental health, and to support someone who is struggling, by educating them how to mind their minds; to pay attention to thoughts, notice emotions, and make mindful decisions.” A mentally healthier society means fewer tragedies, less suffering, more realized potential, and a host of other outcomes that are truly wins for everyone involved.
