'Say, Don't Say' Unfolding Conversation Cards

In response to youth and young adults, we have taken the 'words' shared by young people and created a resource for adults on "how to talk to young people about their mental health.'  We also invite young people to share their own thoughts about what young people want adults to SAY and DON'T SAY to young people.

Caring, Connected Relationships are a BIG DEAL to young people AND, it impacts their mental health.

At a youth mental health event in 2016, we asked high school students “How do you want adults to talk to you about your mental health? What do you want them TO SAY and DON’T SAY?” Over 400 students from grades 8-12 wrote down how they would like to be spoken to, and not spoken to, when talking about their mental health.

Using their words, we have created a resource we are calling the “The Unfolding Conversation” (youth version) - and you can order conversations cards for your group or organization here:

Once you have ordered your cards, you will receive an email confirming your order, along with a paypal button to pay for your order (you don't need a paypal account to use paypal; you can use a credit card).  If your email program won't let you use paypal, you can return to this page and use the paypal button here:
