Teen & Young Adult Engagement

Teen Resources

Josselyn Teen Resources

  • The Junior Board – A leadership opportunity that allows high school students to understand more about teen mental health and be part of the mental health conversation for their peers. The Junior Board is for high school students grades 9-12 and meets one Sunday per month either in-person or on Zoom.
  • Teen Mental Health First Aid (tMHFA) – A skills-based course for adults, educators, others that teaches you to help young people who are experiencing a mental health challenge or crisis.
  • Support Groups – Our support groups aim to create an inclusive, diverse, compassionate, and welcoming space for individuals across our community to connect, share stories, and learn from others with similar experiences. All without stigma or judgement.

School Resources

In partnership with local schools, Josselyn has compiled a list of mental health resources and contacts at New Trier High School, North Shore Country Day School, Lake Forest Academy, and Glenbrook South High School. From coping strategies to support groups and information on mental health care, these resources may be able to help you to navigate stress, overcome obstacles, and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health.
