Mental health issues affect not only the academic performance of our children but their wellbeing in general. Results from the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) showed that bullying, depression and suicide are the most common mental health issues experienced by our local youth.

Learn about the different programs being implemented to help our children to achieve their fullest potential. More importantly, come and meet with other education advocates to brainstorm ideas about how to better support children.

Panelists:

Michael McAuley, Executive Director, Student Discipline and Support Services, Duval County Public Schools, Keto Porter, Director of Full Service Schools, United Way of Northeast Florida and Cindy Watson, Executive Director of JASMYN. Pam, Executive Vice President of the Jacksonville Public Education Fund will be the Moderator.

Doors open at 5:30 p.m. for dinner and refreshments and the meeting will get started at 6 p.m. This event is free and open to the public!
