Grant Halliburton Foundation is once again hosting our adolescent mental health conference When Life Hands You Teenagers on Wednesday, September 25 at Plano Event Center. This promises to be an enlightening conference for mental health professionals, parents, educators, and others who live or work with children and teens.
Developed by Grant Halliburton Foundation, Thrive is a comprehensive strategy for mental, social, and emotional health in schools. The curriculum is aimed at educating students, teachers, and parents on teen brain
health and mental wellness, coupled with trainings to help school staff understand and identify the biggest stressors for students.
Why is this new focus on mental health needed? Sierra Sanchez, Grant Halliburton Foundation Director of Outreach and Education, has the answers.
