Message from the Counselor:

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. You can celebrate by remembering to take care of yourself, take care of each other, and talking about mental health. What makes you happy? Do the things that make you feel regulated and give you energy. Check in on each other. Talk about your feelings. There is no such thing as a good or bad feeling. Feelings are normal. We have them for a reason. It’s important to talk about them and why we have those feelings and what we need to feel happy and calm.


If you or someone in your family is having trouble taking care of their mental health there are people who can help. Please let me know if you need assistance. You can contact me at rwalker@palermok8.org or (530)532-6000 ext 2607. I’m on campus Mon-Thurs.
