NYC's Premier Junior Program

 

The Matt Stevenson Junior Tennis Tournament (MSJTT) Series – the first and only junior tennis tournament events in the country to promote the importance of mental health for adolescents – is hosting a Level 6, Singles, Doubles, and Mixed, in Flushing Meadows on September 17 – 19, 2021.
 
MSJTT, aims to address the national teen depression, anxiety, and suicide crisis by engaging adolescents through a sport they love and promoting dialogue and understanding of these issues. As part of the series, the ProtoStar Foundation is collaborating with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to introduce The Power of Mental Health®, an awareness campaign that provides a forum to talk about depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention in a sensitive and inspiring way. There will be tables at the tournaments providing practical information for the junior players on what signs to look for and where to get help. Parents and coaches can also sign up for online or in-person workshops conducted by AFSP.
