We propose that we should alter the way public post-secondary institutions are funded in Ohio and suggest that the state of Ohio should subsidize some cost for the institution. In return, we hope this would trigger the institutions to cut tuition cost and in return, so students will have less of a financial burden when considering higher education.

There are nearly 9 million people identifying as LGBT+ here in America, Many of whom have been denied basic rights and equality in their lifetime. LGBT+/Gender Identity Rights and Equality has been a heated issue for centuries, and one major factor behind that has been the laws and conventions of society. Since around 1636, same-sex relationships have been considered violations of sodomy laws, leading to the arrest and execution of many homosexual people over the years. States have maintained individual laws allowing LGBT+ discrimination, some still to this day. In 1952, the Government even “purged” all queer employees from their positions as a matter of “National Security.”
Despite all of this, progress was being made. In 1981, queer culture was becoming widely accepted and normalized. But then, everything changed when the AIDS crisis occurred. The incorrect stereotype that only gay men could spread the disease led to a reversal of progress and a rejuvenation of homophobia around the country. AIDS was even called GRID at first (Gay- Related Immune Deficiency), a direct reference to the homophobic stereotype. All this shows how reform is possible, but bias and the laws that encourage it have been a large roadblock in making that reform.
With one in five Americans having an issue with mental health in a year, Mental Health is an ongoing issue, lack of access to proper care including medications and counseling mean many Americans are not getting the treatment they need. Using my research I concluded many people consider affordability a factor in seeking treatment and decided that would be the focus of my project. In this poster you will find possible solutions that could allow more people to access mental health care in America, including medications and counseling.

When starting to look at college's we look at the price of what everything cost: dorms, class credit prices, meal tickets, and books. Well what if everything was lowered in price? What if our tuition could be free? What if more people would go to college if these things were true. With debt being a major cause of why young adults and adults don't want to go back to school after starting in the real world. Public university in the United States have periodically increased the cost of tuition which have resulted in drastic amounts of student debt.

There are many types of therapy available to treat depression. Three of the more common methods used in depression treatment include cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, and psycho-dynamic therapy. Often, a blended approach is used. Some types of therapy teach you techniques on how to re-frame negative thinking and employ behavioral skills in combating depression. Therapy can also help you work through the root of your depression, helping you understand why you feel a certain way, what your triggers are for depression, and what you can do to stay healthy. Some of the “big picture” themes that therapy can help with is relationships, setting healthy boundaries, and handling life’s problems.

Suicide is the result of many factors such as bullying, family issues, loneliness, etc. Through research and personal experiences, we believe there is no solution to suicide. Although there are many sources such as lifelines, counseling, and organizations. We have come to the conclusion, there are only ways to reduce it. One way is to provide better quality counseling. Another way is to limit financial issues.
