I have had the opportunity to conduct presentations in Jersey City Public schools, specifically targeting middle school students. One of the presentations centered around Healthy Relationships, where the focus was on helping students identify the characteristics of Healthy, Unhealthy, and Abusive relationships. The goal was to equip them with the knowledge and awareness necessary for fostering healthy connections with others.
In addition, I delivered a presentation on Social Isolation, emphasizing the impact of depression and anxiety. This session aimed to raise awareness about the challenges and consequences associated with social isolation, while providing strategies and resources to help students navigate and cope with feelings of loneliness and anxiety.
It has been incredibly rewarding to engage with young minds through these presentations, equipping them with valuable information and empowering them to cultivate positive relationships and address mental health concerns.
