  • Ali Rothrock and Andrew Onimus from the “Minding Your Mind” organization are scheduled to present to Berwick Area High School students on September 19, 2019 to help "change the way we talk about mental health".


    “Minding Your Mind" is a non-profit organization designed to provide mental health awareness, education, and intervention to students, parents, schools, and communities.
    At the August in-service, Andrew shared his personal journey of hope and inspiration and Ali educated faculty and staff about mental health and the “Question, Persuade, Response” intervention to suicide prevention.


    Positive feedback led to Ali and Andrew being invited back to the Berwick Area School District to present this information in a developmentally appropriate way to our students to empower them with the skills to help and get help from others this September for Suicide Prevention month. 
    To learn more about Ali and Andrew and the "Minding your Mind" organization, please visit their website: Minding Your Mind .
