Clayton County Schools to focus on student mental health at Friday online forum.

Clayton County Schools will discuss student mental wellness and awareness during an online forum on Friday.

Dubbed “#BetheOneto: Silence the Shame,” the discussion is for students from the 6th- to 12 grades and will be streamed on Facebook Live and YouTube Live from 9 a.m.-10:30 a.m.

The event is designed to increase student awareness of mental wellness and access to resources. A goal is to destigmatize mental health issues and to take away the shame associated with needing help. A panel of mental health professionals from the district and in the community will lead the discussion.
