Wellness Wednesday: Stand Tall

Happy Wellness Wednesday!

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month. Visit the Warning Signs for Suicide page to familiarize yourself with specific behaviors that might suggest thoughts of suicide, especially in youth.
The counselors and Mr. Garcia’s Peer Mediators have partnered to offer some activities at lunch next week for suicide prevention awareness week. Please encourage students to come and visit with us in front of room 506 at lunch next week.

Because YELLOW stands for happiness, positivity, energy, optimism, and joy, we are asking for our campus community to wear YELLOW on Wednesdays to help promote our Wellness Wednesday efforts. 

Self-Care Tip
When experiencing stress or anxiety, practice these “GROUNDING EXERCISES” to reach calm. 
Kindness Challenge
Notice someone not being their usual self? Read these conversation starters to how them you care. 

Affective Statement
I am so proud to see/hear...

We also invite you to encourage your students to visit our Wellness Wednesday lounge in the counseling center at lunch every Wednesday. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress.

To spread the good news of our wellness efforts, please use the hashtag #BeWellRedDevils in sharing your Wellness Wednesday activities.

Be Well Red Devils!
