The John Burroughs H.S. JSA chapter was featured in The Burbank Leader. The chapter hosted a thought talk that was led by Burbank Unified School Board member Steve Ferguson. The discussion focused on a newly drafted policy on teen mental health and suicide prevention.
“More than two dozen Burroughs High students met with Burbank Unified school board member Steve Ferguson this week to talk about teens’ mental health, and what the district can and should do to support them.
“Joining Ferguson on Thursday in teacher David Knatcal’s classroom was Laurie Bleik, executive director of Family Service Agency, which provides counseling services at a number of Burbank schools. The 30 students who attended were part of the school’s Junior State of America club, which meets to discuss local, state and national issues.”
