2015 Miss West Virginia Chelsea Malone talked to students at both county high schools and McNinch Primary about her platform Mental Health Awareness.

Chelsea’s message of “Break the Silence” focuses on telling students it’s o.k. to share their feelings and in the process hopes communication will help reduce the stigma often placed on mental health.

Her talk is based on her own life experiences as a student at Morgantown High School.  Chelsea was bullied during that time of her life and hopes others won’t have to suffer.  She wants students to follow her lead and live a healthier life.

Chelsea will return to Marshall County to visit different schools during American Education Week in November.
