Topic: Mental Health and Trauma
Our first annual Happiness Summit, an online exhibition featuring two survivors of trauma, will take place in December 2020. We will interview two survivors of the Parkland shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which took place on February 14, 2018. Currently, this shooting is the deadliest high school shooting in United States History, surpassing the Columbine High School massacre that killed 15, including the perpetrators. We will explore how these survivors and their school administrations understood mental health as a result of the experience.
