In Science and Space: The idea of being in extreme fear over otherwise menial tasks. An inability to eat regularly to maintain a proper look. A perpetual state of numbing emptiness. Even going as far as to intentionally cause your own death. It’s not a topic many people are comfortable talking about.

According to a study from the years 2018 through 2020 by KidsData, the youth suicide rate in Kern County is 11.6 per 100,000 youth. For comparison, California as a whole has a rate of 8.7 per 100,000. From the Kern County Public Health Service Department’s CDRT Annual Report of 2018, 9 percent of childhood death is caused by suicide.

Because they are afraid, many people who struggle with these issues find themselves alone and without support.

The Interact Clubs of Valley Oaks Charter High School and Tehachapi High School want to help bring these statistics down. Our first step is to bring the community’s attention to this problem. On Sept. 10, VOCHS and THS Interact Clubs will be hosting a Mental Health Awareness Walk. We will meet at West Park at 10 a.m. and walk to the Coy Burnett Stadium. We will have a water break there, and then walk back to West Park to celebrate and share pizza. We invite everyone to join us as we raise awareness for mental health.
