Chamber business luncheon to discuss mental health

The Greater Kirkland Chamber of Commerce is holding its next monthly Business Luncheons event from 11:30 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. on Thursday at the Woodmark Hotel, 1200 Carillon Point in Kirkland.

This month’s topic is teen mental health and wellness.

In 2016, EvergreenHealth launched a new grassroots initiative designed to connect community members who care about youth mental and emotional health to use their individual resources collectively to find solutions to urgent mental health and addiction challenges facing young adults.

As part of that community connection, EvergreenHealth and Studio East joined forces to create The Resiliency Project, using performance arts as a pathway of learning and expression for mental health, targeting high school students.

The Resiliency Project pilot program was just completed at Juanita High School.

Representatives from EvergreenHealth and Studio East will discuss the steps being taken to reach out to the community about this topic.

The cost of the event is $30 for members and $40 for non-members (guests can attend twice at the member price).
