May is Mental Health Month

School Climate Transformation Team sits down with local Mental Health Experts to answer parents' questions and provide tips to help your child successfully return to school after a crisis.

Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and wellbeing, and mental illnesses are common and treatable.

While 1 in 5 people will experience a mental illness during their lifetime, everyone faces challenges in life that can impact their mental health.

There are practical tools that everyone can use to improve their mental health and increase resiliency regardless of the situations they are dealing with.

It’s important to recognize your emotions and own your feelings, work to find the positive even when facing adversity or loss, reach out and try to connect with others, remove those people in your life who are bringing you down, and create healthy routines to take care of yourself.

 

What do these things have in common?

     *Owning your feelings

     *Finding the positive

     *Connecting with others

     *Eliminating toxic influences

     *Creating healthy routines

     *Supporting Others
