“[Counselors] tell you that you can go to their office and they’re always there,” Meadowcreek High School student Katerin Cerezo (left). “But the reality of it is, I feel that we’re not doing enough.”

“We’re Not Doing Enough:” How Mental Health Is Treated at School

by share

As a part of our VOX Investigates Mental Health coverage, we sat down with teens from Meadowcreek High School to get their thoughts on how mental health is handled at school. Among their concerns were not enough counselors and not enough communication. Watch the video to see what they had to say.

Special thanks to the Latin American Association for inviting us to their after-school program, and to VOX ATL volunteer Joshua Cubas for filming.

You are invited to join VOX ATL’s teens at our annual VOX-A-PALOOZA celebration where we will highlight all of the work that has been created this semester as well as give you an opportunity to meet the teens themselves. You will also be one of the first to receive the newest print edition of VOX Investigates: Mental Health! RSVP HERE.
