Nine Malden High School students involved in the “Capturing Community Wellness through Photovoice” photography exhibit are set to receive the 2013 Distinguished Service in Mental Health Advocacy award presented by Families for Depression Awareness. The award is being presented at our Strides Against Stigma event on April 27th at Boston University’s Nickerson Field.
The exhibit, representing a joint effort of the Chinese Culture Connection, Asian American Civic Association, and Institute for Community Health, features photographs that depict what mental wellness means to the teens as young Asian Americans. Sudan Zhuang (photo top left), 17, and Emily Mo (photo bottom left), 15, are accepting the award on behalf of their project group.
