Marsing Youth Mental Health Initiative
Marsing County Schools, in partnership with Southwest District Health and St. Luke's Community Helath & Engagement, is calling all partners, parents, families, business leaders, youth, and other community members to join us in working to build the best possible community for our kids. Data collected in the 2022-2023 school year showed that 66.1% of students reported moderate to sever depression and 72% of students had a low perception of mattering.
Together, we can do something about that!
Join us in building community and decreasing stress and social isolation for our kids!
A Kindness Campaign was started through a Kindness Committee. The committee helped come up with a series of events that were held to build community and create a kinder Marsing.
Previous events held included Cookies & Kindness, Family Activity Night, and a Cinco de Mayo party! The #MarsingKind was also created to highlight events.

What is an Action Team?
An Action Team is a group of folks in a community (including parents, grandparents, small business owners, organizational partners, and other community members) who co-create and execute a plan to address the needs of young people. The action team combines data, real-life experiences, and research in other communities to create real change. And we can start today!
Remember to Give Consent!
There is still time to consent for your student's voice to be heard! Marsing kids will take the Student Well-Being Survey on January 18th and 19th, 2024, don't forget to opt-in! You can do so at this link here!
