Who are we? 

FM Zen and How to Raise an Adult

FM Zen is a group of FM High School educators dedicated to supporting the mental health and wellness of our students through education, conversation, collaboration, and action. Since forming in 2015, we have taken on a number of wellness-based projects in service to our school community. We have engaged in topics that seem pertinent in the lives of our students, including:

  • Building self-efficacy and resilience in our students

  • Reframing how we think about stress

  • The impact of smartphones and social media on emotional and social well-being


One project we undertook was a professional book read of Julie Lythcott-Haims' How to Raise an Adult. Years later, we continually reference this text in conversations and in other projects, making it the perfect choice for our first community "Big Read". 

For more information on other book reads we have engaged in, please see the "Resources" section.
