Wellness Wednesday: You Can Do It

Happy Wellness Wednesday Red Devils!

As the school year comes to an end, there are lots of deadlines and expectations that may cause some stress and anxiety. Remember, there are no limits to what you can accomplish! Keep your eyes on the goal and ask for help when you need it. 

May is Mental Health Month so here are a few more tips for mental health self-care and how to be an ally to those needing mental health supports. 


Think about your physical health. We all have days where we feel a bit sore, have a headache, or are extra tired. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’re sick. You’re sick when something suddenly and significantly changes for the worse or prevents you from functioning properly.

Mental health is similar – the occasional bad day is to be expected, but when things that used to be easy become a lot more difficult, something’s going on. Instead of focusing on physical symptoms, you’ll want to look at your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors.

We invite you to participate in our Mental Health Month Bingo to introduce mental health topics like recognizing warning signs, knowing the factors that can lead to mental health conditions, maintaining mental wellness, seeking help for mental health.

Our weekly emails and our Instagram @SUHiCounseling during the month of May will provide the answers.

Please submit your responses here: suhimay2022 by May 29th for a chance to win a variety of prizes!


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".
