MENTAL HEALTH FACTS AND HELP

Did you know that 20% of youth ages 13-18 live with a mental health condition? Mental health is a prevalent issue among teens and we need to help and support each other.

 The National Alliance on Mental Illness put out a great infographic that really highlights how common and serious mental health issues are among children and teens.

If you want to let the counseling team know about specific student or friend you are worried about you can tell your counselor or teacher directly or complete an 
iCare Form and drop it off in the blue box behind the student services building during regular school hours. If it is an immediate emergency you should call 911 and tell an adult.

WHAT IS WELLNESS?

Definition of Wellness  What is Wellness? (Check out the link from UC Davis for more valuable information on wellness)

Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life.

Dimensions of Wellness

What does wellness mean to you? Wellness is more than being free from illness. Wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth. There are many interrelated dimensions of wellness: physical, emotional, intellectual, spiritual, social, environmental, and occupational. Each dimension is equally vital in the pursuit of optimum health.
