A Livingston Boy Scout is partnering with the Lake Area Mental Health Initiative to host a Mental Health Awareness Fair for his Eagle Scout project.
Raven Franklin, a 17-year-old Troop 97 Boy Scout, has been in scouting since elementary school. A Livingston High School senior, he is active in the Livingston Royal Brigade band and other school activities.
Raven’s troop, family and friends, along with several local organizations, will be at the fair with various information about mental health to spread awareness. Speakers will present short talks during the event regarding aspects, needs, coping skills and personal testimonials.
In a state with 254 counties, mental health resources are spread especially thin in rural areas.
The Mental Health Awareness Fair will take place from 2-5 p.m. Sunday at the American Legion Post 312 on the Hwy. 59 Loop in Livingston. The event is free to the community and all are welcome to attend and support this young man’s journey to Eagle Scout.
