The Project: Mental Health and Media 

Student Interests:

Mental health, Creative Writing, Psychology, and English

The Project:

This Synergy student combined their love for literature and interest in mental health into a project that explored how mental health is portrayed in the media. They reviewed movies, books, and articles pertaining to mental health in teens. Ultimately, they created and designed a blog where they continue to review literature, movies, and songs focused on mental health. 

From the Student:

“The suggestions on how to combine all my interests into one summer project were super helpful. I am the most proud of my blog.”
