Local High School Student Creates Assembly to Raise Teen Mental Health Awareness

<p>On Thursday, May 23rd&nbsp;during May Mental Health Awareness Month, an assembly was held at Hendrick Hudson High School in Montrose, New York, for all students regarding the issue of teen mental health and how to best support one another.&nbsp;</p><p>The assembly was created and organized by Emma Litvinsky, a junior who is a member of Sailors Supporting Sailors, a club at her high school whose purpose is to raise mental health awareness and help&nbsp;student athletes learn how to manage stress.</p><p>With the support of Principal Scollins, the assembly occurred over two periods so that all students, from freshmen through seniors, had an opportunity to attend. Emma reached out to Minding Your Mind, a national mental health non-profit organization that provides mental health education to students in kindergarten through college. The mission of the non-profit is to end the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues.&nbsp;</p><p>Through Emma’s partnership with Minding Your Mind, the organization provided a compelling speaker, Kristen, who shared her personal mental health challenges as a teenager and how she learned positive coping skills leading to wellness for her.&nbsp;</p><ul><li>To further augment awareness, Emma created a visually impactful exhibit utilizing lawn flags. With&nbsp;the help of members from the Sailors Supporting Sailors Club, on the front lawn of the high school, they planted different colored flags representing teens dealing with different mental health challenges. (See attached photo.) The colors of the flags represented the following issues that adolescents deal with:Blue:&nbsp;Depression</li><li>Purple: Anxiety</li><li>Green: Suicide/Suicidal Thoughts</li><li>Orange: Eating Disorders</li></ul><p>The assembly and flag exhibition were so successful that Emma’s school wants to make this an annual event.&nbsp;As Emma says, “Creating an event and a safe space to hear about challenges that we as teens might be facing is really important. I wanted to help foster conversations about mental health so we can support each other and not feel alone when we’re going through a difficult time. Our school wants to do this every year so the hope and healing that come from us supporting one another is a legacy that will continue at Hendrick Hudson.”</p>

KeepOnSharing: Building an Ethical Social Network with Revenue Sharing

<p>In a bold move set to shake the foundations of the multi-billion-dollar social network industry, the newly launched platform <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing (KOS)</a> is introducing a revolutionary approach that combines the familiarity of social networking with the lucrative aspects of online marketplaces. This innovative platform not only seeks to entertain but also to empower its users economically by offering a revenue-sharing model that rewards them for both creating and consuming content.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>At the heart of <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing's</a> strategy is its commitment to transforming users from mere viewers into active partners. According to Mikki <span style="color: var(--geeks-body-color);">St. Germain, CEO of </span><a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a><span style="color: var(--geeks-body-color);">, the </span>platform is dedicated to "creating a new ecosystem where users can socialize, share content, buy, and sell products—all while being fairly compensated." Unlike traditional social networks that capitalize on user activity without adequate compensation, KOS recognizes the intrinsic value users bring as both consumers and creators.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>One of the standout features of <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> is its promise to pay users for engaging with the platform—be it through sharing personal interests, uploading fun content, or listing products in the marketplace. This approach not only <span style="color: var(--geeks-body-color);">enhances the user experience by merging the dynamics of conventional social</span></p><p>media networks with the transactional functionality of marketplaces but also <span style="color: var(--geeks-body-color);">offers a seamless method for users to monetize their online presence.</span></p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>"Imagine being paid every time you or one of your followers scrolled past an ad," Ms. St. Germain envisions,</p><p>highlighting a shift towards recognizing the significant role users play in the advertising revenue model. The platform pledges to redistribute 50% of all revenue back to its users, thereby ensuring that those who contribute to the network's success are duly rewarded. This policy extends not just to content creators with substantial followings but also to everyday users, ensuring that everyone benefits from their engagement and purchases.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>In line with its ethical stance, <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> is also committed to user privacy, ensuring that personal data is never sold or shared. The platform allows users to link freely to external websites, other social networks, and marketplaces without any fees, emphasizing user autonomy and respect for privacy.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Moreover, the platform is taking corporate social responsibility to the next level with the <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a></p><p>Charity Foundation. This non-profit wing of the company ensures that every transaction on the platform also supports charitable causes, operating with no overhead and committing 100% of proceeds to help those in need.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>Maggie Carey, CEO of <a href="http://www.masteritmedia.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">Master It Media</a> and founder of <a href="http://www.painlessposting.com/" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">Painless Posting</a>, a New York-based social media strategist, recognizes the potential impact of <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> on the social media landscape, particularly in addressing the common frustrations faced by users and businesses alike. "Traditional social media platforms have often left users and creators feeling undervalued, while businesses grapple with high advertising</p><p>costs and increasingly complex interfaces," Carey points out. She also notes that although <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> is still in its early stages and may not offer the slick design of more established networks, it introduces a compelling trade-off. "While the platform's layout might not be as polished, it offers a transparency and compensation structure that established networks don't. This can be a significant draw for those who are tired of not seeing the value returned on their engagement and investment."</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>As <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> opens its doors to new users. It promises a unique, straightforward, and inclusive approach to social media. By valuing users as true partners and compensating them for their contributions, <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a> is not just launching a platform—it's pioneering a movement towards a more ethical and equitable digital ecosystem where everyone, regardless of their online following, can benefit directly from the value they create.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>What you can do with <a href="https://bit.ly/mimkos" rel="noopener noreferrer" target="_blank" style="color: blue;">KeepOnSharing</a>:</p><p><strong>1.

State Legislature Restores $2.4 Million for 2-1-1 Helpline Network in NY Budget

<p>New York State Senator Pete&nbsp;Harckham&nbsp;has announced that the State Legislature restored 100% of the $2.4 million funding for the 2-1-1 Helpline New York network in the enacted FY2024-2025 State Budget. Local United Way organizations statewide operate the 2-1-1&nbsp;Helpline network, which ensures that community resources centers can connect individuals with health and human service needs with the right agencies and programs.</p><p>“The 2-1-1 Helpline combines shared services and public-private partnerships to help residents in so many ways, from paying bills and finding caregivers to providing information about disaster relief and pressing concerns,” said&nbsp;Harckham. “It is such an important asset for our local municipalities and state government, in terms of knowing what resources are available to bring certain assistance to our residents. I thank Majority Leader Stewart-Cousins and the members of the Westchester legislative delegation for their tremendous support of the 2-1-1 Helpline.”</p><p>The number of inquiries to the statewide 2-1-1 Helpline was up 153% in 2021 over figures from 2019 to over 15 million calls.&nbsp;Harckham, who represents communities in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties, has sponsored the bill for putting the helpline funding into the state budget in recent years. He made his announcement during a recent visit to United Way of Westchester and Putnam, which operates the 2-1-1 Hudson Valley community resource center from its White Plains location.&nbsp;</p><p>The increased allocation for the Helpline in the new State Budget will expand 2-1-1’s texting capability statewide, support 2-1-1 activations in areas experiencing a disaster and include 211 in New York State’s emergency plan, which will clarify communications, messaging and activations. The 2-1-1 Helpline New York network matches the legislative appropriation with $5.3 million in local grants, contracts and fees for services agreements, including $1.3 million in local United Way investments.</p><p><strong>Hugh Perry, president of the United Way of New York State</strong>, said, “With $2.4 million state support, we will be able to be a resource for people in need every day of the year, every hour of the day. We will also continue our ongoing efforts to make 2-1-1 easy to use and by those seeking help.”&nbsp;</p><p><br></p><p><br></p><p><strong>Tom Gabriel, president and CEO of United Way of Westchester and Putnam</strong>, said, “Two million<span style="color: rgb(49, 49, 49);">&nbsp;New Yorkers rely upon the 211 Helpline each year during times of disaster or when looking for help with their basic needs.&nbsp;For almost 20 years, the New York State Legislature has recognized the importance of 211 in connecting people to the programs and services that can help them.&nbsp;We are honored that New York State will continue to fund this essential service and thank Senator&nbsp;Harckham&nbsp;and all the Legislators that supported it.”</span></p><p>United Way’s 2-1-1 Helpline has nationally certified community resource specialists trained to answer questions and provide referrals for health and human service needs round-the-clock and 365 days a year in 200 languages.
