Revolutionary Peer-to-Peer Mental Health Platform for Kids & Teens
Hello Hudson Valley! You’re listening to In Touch, Townsquare Media of the Hudson Valley’s public affairs and issues program. As always, I’m your host, Conor Walsh! May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and if you’ve been listening all month long, you know that we’ve had some incredible conversations on the topic, ranging from drug abuse to disabilities and mental health illnesses, and how to seek counseling and resources for all of it. Wrapping up Mental Health Awareness Month, we have an excellent show for you today, one that I am sure will be able to help not just today’s youth, but the family unit as a whole.
With us today is Dr. Angela Glymph. Dr. Glymph is the CEO of Peer Health Exchange. Now, Peer Health Exchange provides young people with the support, resources, education opportunities, and digital products needed to make positive healthy decisions. Dr. Glymph has accumulated 15 years of experience and expertise developing and managing health and educational equity programs, as well as evaluating health and educational outcomes of such programs. She is an accomplished businesswoman and is a published author. Dr. Glymph has written several books on the topic of mental health and related subjects. One thing I am excited to speak about today is Selfsee. selfsea is a peer-to-peer platform with mental health resources, support, and stories for young people from young people.
We invite you to join us and listen to a previously recorded conversation between Laurie, Greer and myself here on In Touch.
