COHASSET MINDS MATTER

Our Minds Matter is a student-led movement to change the culture around mental health. Cohasset Youth Ambassadors volunteered to become a chapter of this group. Once a month, Youth Ambassadors dedicate a meeting to Our Minds Matter activities. Evelyn, our Sophomore youth leader, facilitates these activities.
