Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 1949 to spread awareness of the importance of mental health. It is important to know about this topic because mental health affects how we think, act, and feel. If we take some time to get to know this topic, ourselves, our body signs, we can also establish ways to handle different things like stress, anxiety, anger, feeling sad, and so much more.

We will be honoring Mental Health Awareness Month the week of May 8th-12th with the following LUNCH activities:

  • Friday: May 5th AKA Cinco de MAYO! Make your tie dye shirt. (Please bring a white 100% cotton shirt. If you would like to participate in this activity, but can't bring a shirt, let Ms. Perez or Ms. Jannet know no later than Wednesday).

  • Monday, May 8th: Work on an appropriate art piece that relates to mental health

  • Tuesday, May 9th: Wear your tie dye and represent!

  • Wednesday, May 10th: Find your tea- There will be different tea options for students to sample. All the teas available have purposes: stress management, anxiety relief, and/or concentration. Each pitcher will be labeled with the tea flavor and its benefits.

  • Thursday, May 11th: Redmeption, Volleyball game: Students vs. Staff

  • Friday, May 12th: Showcase your artwork and enter it to win a prize! Students will go around all the art pieces submitted and vote for the most detailed piece that relates to mental health. Take your frustration, stress, anxiety away on the Piñata. What better way then to break a Piñata filled with goodies.
