May is Mental Health Awareness month. Connect Summit County sponsored a panel of Park City students representing four high school clubs.  They were there with one sole purpose; to answer anything, anyone wanted to ask them.  The Ask Me Anything event had panel members giving short powerful talks under the Ted X youth video platform.
