Join us for a special livestream for Vermont high school students with Nana-Ama Danquah. Ms. Danquah will be speaking about her experiences as a writer and the importance of talking about mental health. It is recommend that schools connect with their student support networks and/or school phycologists due to the focus on depression and mental health during the event.
The registration form below also includes an option to submit questions for the event. The live portion of the event is limited to Middlebury High School students.
