Former New Hampshire state Supreme Court Justice John Broderick, who is part of a mental health awareness initiative, is teaming up with Education Commissioner Frank Edelblut to address a high school in their first joint appearance.

The two are scheduled to visit Mascoma Valley Regional High School in Canaan on Thursday. Discussions among students, teachers and staff will be part of the Change Direction New Hampshire campaign, an effort to advance a national initiative to change the culture of mental health.

Broderick and Edelbut also will talk with Mascoma guidance counselors and school leaders.

Broderick, senior director of public affairs at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, was seriously injured in 2002 when he was attacked by his son, who at the time suffered from an undiagnosed illness. Broderick’s been speaking to students since 2016.
