South Tahoe High School students host pop up mental health fair

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — South Tahoe High School will host a pop up mental health fair on Wednesday, Jan. 18, during the day for students and parents to get an up close view of the issues that are plaguing the youth and different ways to deal with them. 

The stigma surrounding mental health/wellness Taylor Garcia, a ninth grade English teacher, said is something he’s working towards breaking down and replacing with support and acceptance.

The participants and visitors can expect a forum that mimics a science fair. Classes with a different project present things like meditation, body image workshops, discussions on social media creating a world based on unrealistic expectations and more.

This student run program is open to the student body and community during the school day 8:45-2 p.m. in three different locations; the Library, TADA building and Student Union.
