The Mental Health Education Training at Evanston Township Highschool (ETHS)
In 2015, Evanston Community Foundation awarded a grant to Naomi Ruth Institute with the goal to create a positive change towards mental health related issues. Evanston Township High School students received training on mental health topics that impact high school students. The comprehensive mental health-training curriculum encompassed: General Facilitation Training, How Does Social Media Affect Our Relationships, and Social Media & Substance Use. Training sessions offered to the students were a combination of lectures, short guided activities, and discussions. On May 31, 2016, the Community Education for Youths in Evanston was successfully completed.
