Principal Marsha Morgan says the school has been awarded a special Radio Disney Road Show by the Utah chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness. The school works with the organization to promote The Hope for Tomorrow, a mental health education program that teaches adolescents about mental illness.
The aim of the program is to de-stigmatize the disease, explain the signs and symptoms of disorders common among teens and help them learn positive help-seeking behaviors to deal with issues they might have rather than turn to negative means to fix their problems.
The Radio Disney Road Show will take place at lunchtime in the cafeteria. The broadcast was scheduled as part of National Mental Health Awareness Week.
