The UGA Extension Office, in conjunction with the Rockdale County Board of Commissioners and Rockdale County Public Schools, is hosting the Teen B.E.A.M.S. event on Thursday, March 12, 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., at the Rockdale Career Academy, 1064 Culpepper Drive S.W., Conyers.

B.E.A.M.S., which stands for Building Education Around Mental Services, is a program that offers mental health support to teens and is an opportunity for them to learn how to take care of themselves and their friends, build healthy habits, raise mental health awareness, and connect with caring adults trained to help.

The mini conference, open to students in  6th through 12th grade, focuses on mental health awareness, resilience, coping strategies, and self-care. The evening will consist of free dinner, interactive breakout sessions, door prizes, and a keynote speaker who will discuss their story of hope, healing, and overcoming adversity. There will be mental health professionals on site to meet with any students who chooses to speak with them. Youths can choose two breakout sessions from a menu of options.

Registration is requested so that coordinators may plan for supplies and food for dinner. Register at
