Shining a Light on Student Mental Wellness Family Forum

Posted On: 9/29/2022

The York County School Division, in partnership with the York County PTA, is hosting a mental health forum for families and students from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, October 18 at Grafton Middle School.

We understand our students, families and community may face complex issues and challenges, some of which may be further impacted since the onset of the pandemic. Our mental health is an incredibly important part of our overall health, and critical in our ability to support our families, work effectively, participate in school, and contribute to society in meaningful ways.

This family engagement is designed to promote conversation and increase awareness regarding mental health challenges impacting youth. Attendees will have opportunities to speak with YCSD staff and learn about mental health resources and services available to students in the division and our community.

Other local organizations expected to be present include York-Poquoson Social Services, Colonial Behavioral Health, Bon Secours Family Focus, and military school liaison.
