It’s been a long time since nothing really felt right for any of us, but for North Texas teens, this deadly and isolating pandemic slog seems to last for many lifetimes.
It’s no wonder that the emotional well-being of young people is increasingly threatened, and doctors are reporting an increase in cases of anxiety, depression and even self-harm. Yet too many school districts continue to look the other way when it comes to mental health. Others have the best of intentions but fail to follow through.
Against this dark backdrop, I have some good news today in a local district – Prosper ISD – determined not to let COVID-19 or even campus growth deter its commitment to the mental well-being of students.
Prosper, north of Frisco, is a booming town that is increasingly demanding when it comes to expectation, construction and change. But its nucleus, better illustrated in its schools, is still united and proud of the small town.
