Mental Health is Always on Our Minds
Whether we are talking about it or not, mental health problems and illness are very real parts of every day for young people. AALEAD’s charge as a youth-serving organization becomes how we engage the topic of mental health to best support and prepare AALEAD youth with mental wellness tools and resources. Check out this week’s blog about a recent mental health workshop that AALEAD MD youth engaged with through our partnership with Asian American Health Initiative (AAHI).
