(WAOW) -- Schools across our area are holding mental health seminars.
Mid-April, the D.C. Everest School District held an all day wellness day aimed at teaching kids not just how to help themselves but their friends as well.
They had small and large group sessions, learning tips about anxiety and self care.
Even bringing in renowned speaker Kevin Hines -- who survived a suicide attempt more than two decades ago.
"People all over the world who have survived attempts of suicide of all means, recount having the same instant regret that I had," Hines said during his speech. "Because you recognize in that moment that things could get better some day."
They aren't the only ones holding seminars.
