We also have a great collection of books through Gale Resources brought to you by the Cameron K. Gallagher Foundation focusing on mental health. Cameron's Collection was built on the foundation of hope; hope that if teens were struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, or other forms of mental health issues, that they could reach into this collection and find answers. Students are able to access these titles automatically while at BRMS. From home, students will need to log in using Google.
