PBL High School is recognizing May as Mental Health Awareness Month. We have had special daily informational announcements to increase awareness and understanding of the importance of mental health. Did you know, 1 in every 5 teenagers will suffer from a mental illness and many of them can do a good job hiding it. So whomever you come in contact with today, be kind and spread love!
