Teens Talk to Teens About Mental Health

FLX Teens are Alright!

The FLX Teens Are Alright initiative aims to improve mental health literacy for middle- and high-school aged youth in the Finger Lakes Region of New York. To achieve this, the project brought together a diverse team of 15 local teenagers to create new mental health resources for their peers. Together, youth worked with a team of graphic design professors and students from the Rochester Institute of Technology to design the new materials, which are meant to improve collections and programming in public libraries across Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Wayne and Wyoming Counties. The initiative was a partnership between Common Ground Health, Monroe County Library System, Pioneer Library System and the Rochester Regional Library Council. A Young Adult Librarian from Monroe County also provided support for the written content of the materials. The Network of the National Library of Medicine provided the funding for this initiative. 

To see the materials, stop by your local library and check them out or access them electronically at
