NORFOLK — On Saturday, May 1, Slover Library is hosting a free virtual event that will discuss mental health.

In conjunction with The Sarah Michelle Peterson Foundation, this program will teach participants about mental health and how to keep it in good shape, as well as tactics for coping when stressed or when other aspects in a person’s life might threaten the condition of their mental health.

Some of the topics that will discussed include: the stigma regarding mental health, anxiety, depression, what is considered normal, everyday stress and what is considered to be stress that may need professional intervention.

The program’s emphasis will be on helping participants recognize when they are in need of help and how to go about seeking the help that they may need.

The program will be geared towards teens, their parents/guardians, teachers, and other adults that may want to participate.
