Balancing schoolwork, achieving good grades, filling out college applications, making the varsity roster or the school play, having an active social life—these are just a few of the various pressures high school students face every day.
For some, talking about dealing with these pressures can become even more taxing than the pressures themselves.
Thanks to a local organization called SpeakUp!, Holy Ghost Prep students and parents are invited to speak up on Thursday, March 16 about their daily life challenges in a confidential, yet open environment. Breakout sessions will be held to encourage students and adults to speak openly about critical issues, such as anxiety, body image, depression, mental health and other critical topics facing today’s youth.
This event is open to all members of the HGP community. In fact, the more participants we have, the more fruitful the conversations end up being. So even if you have attended a Parent Education Series event this year, please consider coming to this one too. All attendees are strongly encouraged to pre-register for this event.
