St. Charles, MO: A very inspirational group of teens at Francis Howell High School (FHHS), under the leadership of Larry Anders, Marketing Coordinator at FHHS, ran a “Stop Stigma” campaign for Mental Health Awareness. They collected pennies, had bake sales, using every opportunity to remove barriers to talking about mental illness and how to get help.
The campaign culminated with a group of four Francis Howell High School students, including Shelby Odle, Alyssa Juris, Holly Anderson and Kyle Grantham, presenting a check for nearly $500 to the CenterPointe Hospital Adolescent Program. Susan Mathis, CEO, CenterPointe Hospital and several CenterPointe Hospital managers and therapists presented the students with a letter of appreciation for their thoughtfulness in helping other teens on their journey to success and happiness.
