Last month, our speakers Courtney, Olivia, and Casey shared their respective stories of depression and mental health with students at Chapel Hill-Chauncy Hall School. The speakers also presented educational material to the students, who expressed gratitude for the chance to hear about depression, and to learn how to help themselves or someone else in need. Several students shared how comforting it was to know that they are not alone in having depression, and were relieved that so many resources exist to help them.
