Mental Health Month is May! Mental Health Awareness Month (or Mental Health Month) is recognized in the United States each May and has been observed every year since 1949. Most recently, the burden of isolation, fear and disconnection has increased many mental health stressors both in our community and throughout the world. The purposes of Mental Health Month is to help eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness by raising awareness, providing support, educating the public and advocating for policies that support people struggling with mental health. Mental health support is available here at STJ. The wellness office has school nurses and counselors on staff that are trained to provide support and advocacy for those who may be struggling. Self-referrals can be made along with referrals from teachers, advisors or family. You can contact the Wellness Office or stop-in. The Wellness Office will be hosting a gathering on Wednesday, May 4, afterschool to create posters and flyers recognizing mental health month, for those interested. In addition to individual supports, Ms. Weikel and Mr. Railla, both licensed professional counselors, facilitate a time to Relax Group on Mondays at 3:30pm in the Library 2nd floor Conference Room.


Happy Birthday today to Brittin Ward and Sophia Deschamps!
