Is Overrated


On June 8, 2024, local teens and young adults gathered at Normal is Overrated to discuss their mental and behavioral health challenges. This annual community-wide event included inspirational stories from teens with first-hand experiences, an opportunity to connect with available mental health services and resources in Southwest Florida, information about art therapy, and an interpretative dance performance.
