Local News

RIVERTON, Utah (ABC4 News) – The Riverton community joined together to raise awareness of anxiety and mental health at a special event Monday, Jan 28th. 

The event, Live in Real Life: Part 2, was a follow-up to the standing-room-only event for parents about children’s social media use and its impact on mental health held in September last year. 

“This event is important for our community as we seek to address the struggles with mental health and anxiety that many people face, including our youth,” said Riverton Mayor Trent Staggs. 

Educational booths were available after the event for attendees to see what resources are available for things like counseling, health insurance, mental health, etc. 

Live in Real Life: Part 2 is held in conjunction with Riverton High School’s HOPE Week and is co-sponsored by Riverton City, Jordan School District, and Intermountain Riverton Hospital.
