Capstone Project (Open Access)
Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)
Human Development and Family Studies
This project was focused on the lack of mental health awareness curriculum in high school. Due to students having lack of education in high school, this created many barriers between students and academics, as well as students receiving the proper resources. This project focuses on adolescents in STEM. When adolescents gain the proper knowledge and awareness on Depression and Anxiety, they are more open to being able to identify the warning signs within ones self as well as being able to promote mental health well-being.
