Mental Health Awareness Month: You Are Not Alone

May 2021

This year Mental Health Awareness Month has additional significance. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. It has also taught us a lot about the importance of staying connected and taking care of our physical and mental health. 

Now, more than ever, it is critical that we promote mental health awareness to reduce the stigma around struggles which often prevent people from seeking help. Our District continues its commitment to raising awareness about mental health and improving access to mental health services. 

Together, we can spread the message that “You are not alone” and help anyone affected by mental illness get the care they need to live healthy and fulfilling lives. Getting the right help at the right time can make all the difference for people in need, so our district has partnered with Care Solace to help our students, staff, and their families quickly find quality care matched to their unique needs.
