I know my past few blog post have been confusing, just me trying to figure out exactly what I am going to do with this project. I still don't have a set plan and all of the details worked out, but my thoughts have been sorted out.
Depression is extremely common among teenagers. I don't think many people realize how serious of an issue this is, it almost seems like I have more sad friends then happy ones. I've decided not to sit around and watch this anymore. I want to raise awareness to the fact mental health is just as important as physical health, a broken arm can heal. A mind, is a bit more complicated and a sick one can be extremely dangerous.
My plan of action is to talk to Hannah Connors, a former 20 time student, who last year did a project similar to mine. She organized a walk to raise money for suicide prevention (or something of the sorts). I don't know if we're just going to chat about project ideas, or maybe working together in some way, but I'm hoping she can help set me on the right path.
