Le Flambeau Foundation, Inc., 3/18/23
Congratulations to the week #4 winner of THE SPARK of LF Spring 2023 session! In the words of our English Grader Ms. Alexis (Floyd)…
“Thank you for your contributions. A common theme was not being comfortable sharing feelings due to stigma. I hope that you all benefitted from the encouragement of your peers because even finding just one person to talk to about hard things you’ve faced can relieve a lot of tension and pressure.
This week our SPARK of the week is Gaëlle Almonor. She was very receptive to the advice of her peers, which is important for mental health. When one chooses to make mental health a priority, the results are beneficial. She also brought attention to an on-the-ground initiative in Haiti. She also addressed the realities in school. Congratulations Gaëlle Almonor! Great job! Woohoo!
Background: The topic focused on how mental health is addressed in Haiti. Participants commented on perceptions, initiatives in place, and their level of comfort in discussing personal mental health.
On behalf of Le Flambeau Foundation, we congratulate Gaëlle Almonor for being the SPARK for week #4 of our Spring 2023 session of THE SPARK of Le Flambeau.
