Thank you to all who were able to join us at The Kennedy Forum’s Spotlight Series event, where we convened to discuss “Community, Sports, and Mental Wellness” at Kennedy-King College in Englewood. It was an inspiring and thought-provoking evening of conversation, and we are so thankful to our speakers and community partners for taking the stage to share their stories and be a resource to the community.
We were thrilled to host so many youth last evening, and are hopeful that this next generation is embracing the importance of mental wellness and ensuring that prioritizing mental health is part of their game plan.
