Mental Wellness Month

January is MWM: here are some resources

Mental Wellness

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is defined as a state of well-being in which a person realizes their own abilities, can cope (using healthy methods) with the normal stresses of life, can work productively, and is able to make a contribution to their community.


Being proactive about mental wellness can lead us to being more solidly mentally healthy. Ways to focus on mental wellness: reduce stress, get enough sleep, be mindful, deal with loss, stay socially connected, and build resilience.

Student Mental Health Awareness Group

We have 17 students building a campaign to address student mental wellness. They aim to kick off this campaign at the end of January.


Their campaign slogan: Accept. Share. Connect.


Their campaign goal: By reducing the stigma and increasing awareness of support systems, we aim to encourage our student body to compassionately discuss and recognize signs of mental illness.

Library Media Center Offerings

Books....we have lots of books. Currently, we have a wide range of books on display to support our students' mental wellness.
