Hopkinton-based Mental Health Collaborative is scheduled to be featured on Boston’s WBZ-TV Channel 4 morning newscast on Monday (Jan. 31). The newscast airs at 5 and 6 a.m.
WBZ anchor Kate Merrill will interview MHC founder/executive director Abby Rosenberg about the mental health literacy programming that the nonprofit offers to communities and schools.
On Dec. 7, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a new advisory highlighting the urgent need to address the nation’s youth and young adult mental health crisis. As per his recommendation, MHC is providing critical, foundational mental health literacy to families, communities, organizations and schools.
“We are currently focusing most of our energy on teens, young adults and those [who] support them and care for them,” Rosenberg stated. “The soaring rates of mental health challenges amongst these age groups are alarming, and many are referring to it as the second pandemic.”
