Phelps Helps Project

Phelps Helps Project: A closer look at the latest developments.

Phelps Helps had observed increased isolation among the students in the community due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The regional high school that many of them attend reported record-low levels of engagement. To support youth who are facing monumental challenges and get them back on track academically, Phelps Helps recognized that they also needed to support youth with their mental health by establishing trust and instilling hope. They set out to do this by hosting weekly social activities in schools and outside the school environment, offering mental health workshops, implementing health promotion initiatives, and making referrals to mental health service providers for students.
