A local tragedy of suicide initiated a movement by residents of Solana Beach. This movement known as “Finding Voices” empowers teens to spread their message of talking, sharing time and love as the answer to alleviate teen anxiety and depression. Their mission is to teach and encourage adults and teens to communicate more effectively regarding their concerns and to do things together which foster a strong and loving relationship.
Friends of Solana Beach Library is sponsoring a “Finding Voices” program on Tuesday, Jan. 16 at 6:30 pm. The program will consist of a panel with students and adults who will speak candidly regarding teen stress, anxiety and depression. They will help the audience understand when everyday stress is something more serious than everyday stress. They will also discuss positive techniques for negative situations and talk about available school and community resources.
The library is located at 157 Stevens Avenue in Solana Beach. The program is free of charge and open to the community. Sufficient parking will be available at both the upper level of Earl Warren Middle School parking lot and the lower level Library parking lot. Refreshments will be available prior to the meeting at 6 p.m. and the meeting will start promptly at 6:30 p.m.
