Drugs and Mental Health

It would be an injustice to close this week without talking about the two most important things haunting Gen Z; mental health issues and drug abuse. To tackle this issue, I have decided to take a different approach. Instead of sharing stories on the two, I will be sharing resources to help if you or anyone you know is having a hard time
