Roton Middle School holds first Mental Health Fair
Roton Middle School held its first ever Mental Health Fair on Monday.
Students engaged with local mental health agencies at booths, practiced yoga, tried rowing machines, and talked to a life coach.
The students also learned regulation skills through animal therapy.
“Over the years, there has been a stigma with mental health and how we aren't supposed to talk about mental health and mental health is something we deal with by ourselves, and we want to let the people know that it's okay to not be okay," says Ricqul Pratt, school counselor.
The event was held in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month.
