Our Peer Support Specialists are trained to have open and honest conversations about mental health to reduce stigma, motivate young adults, and promote hope throughout recovery. University of Delaware will begin training a new cohort of peer specialists starting in the Fall of 2021.
Sean’s House is a mental health safe haven for young adults ages 14-24, created by the local non-profit SL24: Unlocke the Light. We promote our guests’ mental wellness by providing access to trained peer support specialists and assistance connecting with community mental health resources, as well as by providing space for guests to do schoolwork, relax with friends, or simply pick up a hot cup of coffee. It is our hope to reduce the rate of youth suicide by providing a place for young adults to feel safe, welcomed, and supported.
On September 14th, 2021 St. Georges Tech was honored to have Mr. Locke come to our school and speak to the sophomore students about the importance of mental health and the impact that suicide has on families. Check out this re-cap video from the day.
We are thankful to have such a supportive staff and student body and be able to have open and honest communication about mental health awareness.
