October Is National Depression Awareness Month

Digital Wellness Month

We are committed to the promotion of mental wellness, the prevention of suicide, prevention of drug abuse and a stronger response to bullying. We believe we must empower our students to ask for support for themselves or their friends, while teaching them to be active problem solvers who are optimistic about their future.

Many people who suffer from depression don’t even realize it. Or they suspect they’re depressed, but say and do nothing about it. During Depression Awareness Month this October, get to know the signs of depression — for yourself or a loved one who may be struggling in silence.

Here also is some information on the prevention of bullying and cyber bullying. We encourage you to talk to your children about these difficult topics. Please also call you child’s school if you have concerns, we are here to partner with our families.
