CKG Foundation delivers a program to students at Trinity High School last year.
The nonprofit Cameron K. Gallagher (CKG) Foundation reports that more than 14,000 teens were helped since last spring 2016. Their goal for 2017 is 20,000 teens. CKG is dedicated to spreading positivity, erasing stigmas and providing education and awareness of issues such as stress, anxiety and depression in teens. They deliver programs in schools, onsite at their office in the West End and during community events.
Programs range from coordinating social interaction and providing professional young adult speakers that give presentations and testimonials about their own teenage struggles to offering small group workshops about using mindfulness and other tools to improve mental health and general well-being.
