Mental Health Discussions in Schools

In my middle school years, I rarely recall having any talks about mental health. Once I got into High School, we had more talks about mental health and suicide. In my Freshman Seminar class, Dustin came in and talked to the class. It was my favorite speaker we've had in class the whole year, and many others can agree with me. I learned a lot more about mental health and suicide and I got a lot out of that day. I think it is really important for schools to raise awareness about these things. It helps educate the students and provide comfort for many others. I find these talks to be beneficial because I learn a lot more and I feel connected to those around me. It would be nice if we got even more of these talks because it would educate many even more on these topics. It would also help those who need support and comfort, to feel comforted and hear other peoples' stories. Overall, I think society is doing a lot better in terms of talking more about mental health, but it can be improved in the education environment even more.
