This second meeting is a discussion forum sponsored by GRACEDBYGRIT for local teens in Solana Beach, Del Mar, Carmel Valley, Cardiff, and surrounding areas. Participants will be asked to discuss their high school experiences and provide input for a social media campaign to bring awareness to the growing issue of teen depression. This input will be the most important part of making sure that this campaign is successful in making a real impact. Every person in attendance will also have an opportunity to be a part of creating the campaign and learning how to use social media to promote a social awareness campaign.
Due to the recent tragedy that occurred at Torrey Pines High School, I decided to put together an effort to create a grassroots social media campaign that will bring light and awareness to the growing issue of teen depression. Support for this idea has since grown to include many community members and local businesses. This campaign will be run by teens using social media to discuss and educate others on what teen depression may look like and how to help. My hope is that this campaign will help both teens that may be going through something and parents that may have questions.
If you are a parent with a teen in the area, we strongly encourage you to have them attend.
