August 16, 2019

Beginning today, a group local teens — Hudson, Rylee, Malorie & Olivia — are taking over the Friday episodes for the next three weeks. Stemming from the Community Task Force on Youth Mental Health and Suicide Prevention, this group of 14- and 15-year-olds have decided one of the things this growing community conversation on youth mental health needs is the perspective of actual youth. So for the next three Fridays, the microphones are theirs as they bring you candid conversations on mental health, technology, and life as a teen in our suburban community. If you have questions for this group, or topics you’d like to hear more about, please message us through our Link 2 Lee’s Summit Facebook Page or by email at nick@link2leessummit.com.
