GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Today high school students and many others from the community gathered at Lincoln Park for a “Mental Health March.”
Students from Palisade High School wanted to "reduce the stigma surrounding mental health" when they decided to hold the march. It's all a part of a non-profit called the "Green Ribbon Club."
Although it was student-led, people of all ages came to support. They walked from Lincoln Park to the Old City Hall Building.
"It's also empowering because I think, especially with the younger generation, we're the one that sets like the precedence for what happens next. So, if we do well, hopefully following generations will follow,” Co-President Tatum Menon said.
A little over 50 people showed up to the march, carrying signs and showing their support.
