The Bellingham Board of Health, in cooperation with the Bellingham School department, is sponsoring a program entitled “The Secret Life of a Massachusetts Teen” presented by speaker Jon Mattleman on Monday, Sept. 28, at 7 p.m., in the Bellingham High School auditorium. This is a free event and light refreshments will be served
Mattleman is a mental health counselor who specializes in depression, suicide and stress, but other areas of expertise include understanding the stages and impact of “loss”—the social and emotional impact of technology on youth and adolescent at-risk behaviors.
He received his B.A. from Clark University in 1978, and his MS in Counseling from the University of Hartford in 1981. Jon’s workshops and presentations are geared to give participants tools they can implement immediately, strategies that work with children and youth, and approaches which have proven to be critical to building healthy relationships. He has appeared in a wide variety of settings including middle and high schools, colleges, community centers, workplaces, and places of worship.

Mattlemen is a certified trainer in QPR Suicide Prevention and has worked with professionals in schools and with state organizations such as the Massachusetts Probation Department, as well as with hundreds of parents. He has been described as “engaging, warm, respectful, humorous, accessible, fun, energetic, and personal.”To read more about Jon, visit his website at
