Standing Strong Together


Perhaps I have been living under a rock, but I never knew there was such a thing as TEDxKIDS! Leave it to the good folks at TEDTalks to think of the next generation and provide a forum for young people to share their thoughts and stories. Please allow me to introduce you to Kevin Breel, a 19-year-old self-proclaimed writer, comic, and mental-health activist.  Kevin believes we could literally save lives if we make it okay to say 4 words, and break the silence on mental-health issues.  I invite you to carve 11 minutes out of your schedule to watch this talk. His words may help you save a life.

4 words.
11 minutes.
You decide.

As Kevin says we can help each other – and save lives –  if we stand strong together.

Peace friends,

    All parents and friends of teenagers should watch this! There is a terrible stigma surrounding depression.
