Prizmah Teen Mental Health Club Playbook

Teen Mental Health Club Playbook

The Teen Mental Health Club Playbook, is a resource that will walk you through the process of starting your own student-led mental health awareness club at your Jewish day school. This playbook contains step-by-step guidance in addition to information about teen-specific mental health programming and national organizations with which your club can partner (and that provide funding). Using the peer-to-peer club model, we can reduce stigma, empower teen leadership and provide accurate information to the student body about mental health.
