Let's Talk About It

A Book Group for parents and residents of Burlington, MA centered around Mental Health

Burlington Public Schools, Burlington Youth and Families, and the Burlington Town Library will partner to offer a 5-series book group around the issue of mental health. The mental health team from Burlington High School will lead book group discussions and informational sessions around mental health at the conclusion of each book. Book group meetings will be held at the town library (or virtually). The goal of the book group is to widen the conversation around mental health within the Burlington community and to provide community members with a connection with the Burlington Public Schools mental health team.

About us

The Team facilitating the group discussions around mental health topics explored in each of these dynamic books is made up of an interdisciplinary group of educators and mental health professionals at Burlington High School, including adjustment counselors, social workers, school psychologists, and educational specialists. Project leaders include: Christine Conceison, Bonnie Nichols, Taylor Riedl, Sarah Berkley, and Jacqueline Rogers. Having worked directly with students and families, it is the goal of the Team to broaden the conversation of mental health and social-emotional learning within the entire community of Burlington. With support from the BPS Administration, the Burlington Public Library, Burlington Youth and Family Services, and guidance from the BHS School Librarian, the Team applied for CHNA 15 Community Outreach Grant. CHNA 15 is a partnership between the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, hospitals, service agencies, schools, businesses, boards of health, non-profit organizations and citizens working together to improve the health of member communities. The Team was awarded the funding for this community-based prevention and health promotion initiative. The Team is eager to begin this exciting community partnership and delve into these essential topics.
