PostSecret and the Pandemic: Struggles, Successes & StrategiesFrank's all new interactive online presentation reveals our true feelings about how the pandemic has disrupted our lives, while providing evidence-based tools to aid young people as they navigate through this challenging, but temporary crisis.
Community building, reducing stigma, and asking for help are all discussed in response to the rise in anxiety, loneliness, depression and grief.
67% of young people talk with a friend about mental illness before a parent, teacher or professional. One objective of this presentation is to give students the confidence and knowledge to know how to respond when a friend trusts them with their mental health secret.
In addition to sharing the most extraordinary secrets and inspiring PostSecret stories, participants will also learn from new pandemic related postcards that Frank has received from young people and the feelings and experiences they have been confiding on PostSecret social media. We are experiencing the pandemic differently, but we are all going through it together.
The event was AMAZING! It was so impactful and we really brought a lot of students together. It was everything we had imagined and more.
