National Mental Health Month: MIND Yo’ HEALTH
May is National Mental Health Month! Throughout the month students will have many opportunities to participate in healthy, mental health boosting activities. We’re calling the campaign MIND Yo’ HEALTH. Each week will have a theme and focus, giving students healthy ways to support their mental health.

  • This Week: This week’s focus is Move Your Body. Did you know even small amounts of regular exercise can have huge benefits on your overall mental health? Not only does moving your body boost energy, increase dopamine, reduce stress, help you sleep better and work more productively but studies also show people who suffer from anxiety and depression can achieve long-term relief from exercise and its mood boosting benefits! This week the students had the opportunity to do lunchtime activities like going for a walk, doing physical activity challenges, and playing lawn games. They were reminded to use their lunch time as an opportunity to feed their bodies and also MOVE their bodies to boost their ‘happy’ hormones and help their brains refocus for the afternoon.
  • Family Challenge: Go for a walk, bike ride, or hike as a family sometime this weekend. Talk with your teen about their schedule and ask how much physical activity they are getting. If they need more, come up with ways to add in even small amounts of activity to boost their overall mood and productivity.
