Read Your Mind is a monthly, virtual series focusing on teen mental health & wellness. Featuring YA authors and community health experts, we hope to explore complex and common health concerns through the vehicle of Teen books.
In April we will host authors Lisa Allen-Agostini & I.W. Gregorio to discuss how racism & differing cultural perceptions of mental health affect teens and young adults. Our community partner for this event is Gateway Community Services and the authors will be interviewed by local Lewiston youth ZamZam Elmoge of the GenZ Project.
Content warning: Topics discussed in this series include anxiety, depression, suicide, self harm, and other sensitive mental health topics. Support resources will be provided at the beginning and end of each session, and on the PPL and LPL websites. If you are in need of immediate support, call Maine Crisis Services 1-888-568-1112 or text NAMI Maine's Teen Support Line at (207) 515 - 8398.
