Safe and Accepting Schools

    Evan Hennigar, a bright, charming, athletic, goal oriented, young boy, was starting on what was sure to be a bright future. And then, as opportunities presented themselves, so did his anxiety. Determined to not be defeated, Evan used his competitive nature to conquer his beast, and has used his voice to bring awareness to the issue of mental illness, through his book, Defeat Your Beast. Evan's mother, Tina, cheers from the sidelines, giving Evan support and advice to other parents of anxious children. Together they'll share some of their "armor" they've used to help control his anxiety.
