Ellsworth Adult Education is partnering with The Yellow Tulip Project, a youth driven, non-profit organization based out of Portland, Maine, to bring conversations about mental health to you! The YTP focuses on smashing the stigma surrounding mental illness and building communities of people who realize that hope happens when youth and community leaders work together.
Mental illness is that silent elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about but everyone should. Let's Talk About Mental Health provides a safe and interactive space to learn more about mental health and what we as community members can do to reduce the stigma that surrounds the topic.
This three-session course is designed to help community members develop useful skills for talking to young adults about these issues. The course will be divided into three distinct modules with plenty of time for discussion and reflection.
