Teen support group formed

NEWARK – At the request of teens and those who work with them in the community, Mental Health America of Licking County is launching a free support group for teens in grades 6-12. The group started meeting every Monday beginning July 20, from 4:00 to 5:30 pm at MHA, 65 Messimer Drive, Newark.

The intent is to offer a welcoming and safe environment where young people can find friendship and support for the personal struggles that they may be dealing with. Topics will include depression, anger, self-esteem, bullying and self-harm and activities will utilize both written and art journaling.
