Brief Description:

This new report, co-authored with 13 Latina middle and high school students who live and learn in Philly, sheds light on the mental health challenges faced by Latina girls, toxic perceptions and approaches to mental health, and strategies for schools to do better. Not only are these students shattering the silence around mental health, they’ve created a policy agenda for school and district leaders, as well as elected officials that would create safer, more supportive schools for all students.
