Mental Health Matters in Biomed


Molly Olschewske, Staff Writer

Mrs. Hamilton’s Biomedical Science class is taking a dive into mental health research. In these lessons, they are critiquing a study on mental health literacy that identifies twelfth grade as an important year to identify mental health coping skills and regulation strategies. The goal of the study is to find new ways to help them outside of school, promote mental wellness, and healthy coping skills.  

Senior Biomed student Jocy William’s discussed the project’s influence. “It is very important that you take your mental health seriously.” Her fellow Biomed classmate, Senior Ethan Carver said, “I find it refreshing to be learning something this useful in school.”
