Program Helps Young People Talk Carefully About Mental Health Issues.

The Boston Globe (7/16, A1, Wen) reports in a front-page story on “a program called Strategic Sharing, which helps young people who have struggled with mental health issues talk about their past in selective ways.” Those involved “want to lead efforts to curb long-held prejudices against people with mental illness, but must carefully consider what they say publicly to protect their image as they enter the adult world.” The “program, created by the Annie E. Casey Foundation, counsels young people with mental illness how to promote awareness of psychiatric issues but not share too much that might hurt them on the job or in new relationships.”
