Celebrate Mental Health Month with Tools 2 Thrive!

We're excited to be celebrating Mental Health Month! COVID-19 has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. Now, more than ever, we must eliminate the stigma around mental health struggles, because that stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help. We invite you to explore and share these practical "Tools 2 Thrive" from Mental Health America. Regardless of our age, background, or personal situation, we can all benefit from improving our mental health and increasing our resiliency. Tools 2 Thrive includes resources on:
  • Adapting after trauma and stress;
  • Dealing with anger and frustration;
  • Getting out of thinking traps;
  • Processing big changes;
  • Taking time for yourself; and
  • Radical acceptance.

See below for events and more resources.

In addition to celebrating Mental Health Month, we're also honoring Teacher Appreciation Week. Thank you, teachers, for the extraordinary work you do every day, even when faced with unprecedented obstacles and for always ensuring pathways to success for every student.

En beca y solidaridad,

Andrew, Ann, and the GCSC Team
