Talking street harassment & mental health

We spent our morning at St Francis Xavier High School, where we were invited as part of their ‘Mental Health Awareness Day’!

It was great to spend some time talking with students about street harassment and the way in which systemic violence impacts our daily lives and in turn, our mental health.

Tons of great community organizations came out to show their support. The great folks at DIFD were there, handing out information and painting purple hearts to raise awareness about youth struggling with mental health issues.
