Mental Health Week

This week is health week for both the Mustangs and Mavericks. You may notice light green ribbons hung all over campus, along with positive quotes from ASB. This is all due to Mental Health Week. The reason behind this event is to bring awareness to mental health issues. 

We hear about this word, mental health, a lot. But what does it even mean? The term mental health includes our emotional, physical, and social well being. Anything can affect your mental health positively or negatively, regardless of how small and insignificant it may seem to others. The best way to help anyone who might need your help, or someone who is showing signs of depression, anxiety or any other disorders. As always, if someone you know needs help in anyway be sure to talk to a trusted adult, such as a teacher or counselor.
