The KXAN” Save Our Students” project aims to remove the conversation barriers around mental health. Mental health is one of those topics that is so broad and so complicated that many parents don’t know where to start when talking to kids. Mental health issues are frequently perceived as a weakness when, in reality, owning them and treating them shows great strength. It’s time to change the conversation.
KXAN’s “Save Our Students” project has been supported by the Solutions Journalism Network, a nonprofit organization dedicated to rigorous and compelling reporting about responses to social problems.
