This week, the PATH Program hosts O’Bryant’s 2nd Annual Mental Health Awareness Week. 

The campaign “Know Science. No Stigma.” has a new call to action: If you feel something, say something. “Did You Know” facts are now posted on doors throughout the school building, in addition to a pop-up resource table located in the main lobby with information on mental health disorders, treatment, and related handouts.  

How to Support:

  • MONDAY — Join us in the main lobby from 6:45-7:20 AM to greet students as they return to school! We will hand out stickers and stress balls, blow bubbles, and encourage students embarking on (a very stressful) AP testing week. 
  • WEEKLONG — Commit to wearing your MHA button pin every day this week (located in staff mailboxes). In so doing, you’ll help to raise awareness, reduce stigma, and show staff solidarity for a health matter that affects all ages, cultures, and communities. 
  • ONGOING — Contact an administrator immediately with any concerns about a student’s safety. General concerns can be reported via the BAG forms on Aspen. 
 
Thank you for your support, and have a strong week! Be well.
