The month of May is recognized nationally as Mental Health Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, combat stigma, prioritize our well-being and promote open conversations about helpful and available mental health resources.

Below we have shared some useful tools to help you build your coping toolbox, including grounding exercises, the Path to Calm and a decision map to help find support when you need it the most.

Please also remember, when you are in need or just need someone to talk to, your School Social Workers are here for you.

You are not alone!
