May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Week 2020 – National Awareness Days Events ...

From Assistant Superintendent Patrick Larkin:

May is Mental Health Awareness Month and we will continue to share resources and ideas that can support staff, students, and families during this time. Today’s article is titled Best ways to help kids through the pandemic. It reiterates a few key practices that can help us help our kids get through some of the anxiety they may feel during the pandemic:

  • Talk to your children. Sharing can be helpful.

  • Write about feelings or do art to express emotions.

  • Mindfulness techniques can help you and your children focus and keep calm.

  • Exercise at home or in your yard.
