Wellness Wednesday: Recharge

Happy Wellness Wednesday Red Devils!

It's been a pleasure bringing the weekly messages to you this year! We hope you have a restful and recharging summer! Please fill out our survey to improve our messages for next year. 

As mental health month comes to a close, you may be addressing your mental health for the first time with the information we have been sharing with you.  You may come across words that seem simple but you aren’t exactly sure what they mean.

The link is a list of terms used throughout the 2022 “Back to Basics” Mental Health Month Toolkit:
Fact Sheet #7 

988 has been designated as the new three-digit dialing code that will route callers to the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. While some areas may be currently able to connect to the Lifeline by dialing 988, this dialing code will be available to everyone across the United States starting on July 16, 2022.

When people call, text, or chat 988, they will be connected to trained counselors that are part of the existing National Suicide Prevention Lifeline network. These trained counselors will listen, understand how their problems are affecting them, provide support, and connect them to resources if necessary.

The current Lifeline phone number (1-800-273-8255) will always remain available to people in emotional distress or suicidal crisis, even after 988 is launched nationally.

Because YOU play the most important role at our school in keeping our campus safe, don't forget if you see something, say something

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.

We all need someone to talk to, someone who listens, and someone who understands. Your Sweetwater High School Counselors are here for you. Click here to complete the SUHi Wellness Check-In. Your counselor will reach out to you 😀

Virtual Wellness Room
Please visit our Virtual Wellness Room to take a break from your daily routine. Do some breathing exercises, stretch, or play a game. It's OK to take a time out for a "brain break".
