Social Wellness Month
July is Social Wellness Month. Social wellness involves nurturing yourself and your relationships so that you feel supported. When youth have a healthy relationship in their life, like a trusted mentor or parent, it can help protect against multiple risk behaviors that could contribute to delinquency and unintended pregnancy. Discover ways that you can encourage social wellness!
