Feb. 16—The Henderson County Youth Council has produced multiple educational videos for middle school-age students in Henderson County on topics common to teens.
The series is titled "YOUth are not alone, a teen hope initiative." All videos are student-written, directed, and edited and provide information and tips on subjects including depression, anxiety and stress, boredom, agitation and irritation, anger and fear, and respect.
The videos will be distributed to other schools beginning in 2021, and the Youth Council is preparing even more in order to educate and support students in Henderson County.
