#2: Not Going to Settle – WtS? Kickoff

I am still thinking of doing a topic on how communities deal with mental illness in Vermont. It’s a very important issue and I think that it could be beneficial to look into it. However, I am still going to have a very open mind about my topic. I am not going to settle for a topic that I’m not interested in, but I am more than happy to research another topic that I’m interested in. All in all, I don’t really know what I’m going to do, but I think researching mental illness is a good start.

    I like this quote: “I am still going to have a very open mind.”

  • Emily,

    I teach social studies at MUHS. I am not sure if we have crossed paths very often, but I will keep a look out for you as I make my way through the halls. Mental illness is certainly a topic of great importance and in need of more attention in our communities. I am sure that you saw Hannah Quinn’s work at MC to bring greater attention to her struggles with mental illness, and those of high school and college students. I love that you are not going to settle to work on just any topic this year. As you continue to process your ideas know that when you enjoy doing something, there is a very good chance you will become passionate about it. Enjoy the effort you put into the process of learning!

    Let me know when and if I can help, and I will provide as much support as I can!


    • Casey,

      I actually did not know about Hannah Quinn’s work, so thank you for pointing me in that direction!


  • Hi Emily,
    I was reading your post and noticed that Rex Ross also thought about doing mental illness. I think that you can have really empowering project this year and I can’t wait to see what you project will turn out to be!
