    Leadership U LIV4TMRW student project team will be hosting a short film and expert panel discussion on what can be done to help teens who are struggling with depression or contemplating suicide. It will take place on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at Oakland Mill High School from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.  The event is free and open to the public.

    The goal of the event is not only to increase awareness of the devastating impact of teen depression and suicide, but also to arm the community with effective tools to help their friends and loved ones who are experiencing depression and thoughts of suicide.  Students, parents, and school administrators are encouraged to attend.

    Among those participating in the panel discussion are Amanda Ganoe of Grassroots Crisis Intervention Center, Juli Murray of Inquiring Minds LLC, representatives from the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and representatives of the Howard County Health Department.   Howard County School Superintendent, Dr. Michael J. Martirano, is also scheduled to attend this important presentation.
