Mental Health Awareness

For SCSD Students, Families, Colleagues, and Schenectady County Community Agencies & Organizations

#StrongerTogether #MentalHealthAwareness


Welcome to our 3rd Annual Mental Health Awareness event - a virtual one this year - to continue connecting our community members with each other through health and wellness promotion ideas this May (Mental Health Awareness Month) and throughout the year! You can add this site to your "favorites" and visit again and again.

We challenge you to get active with as many of the suggestions and resources on this site as possible. We hope you find lots of familiar faces and get some benefit from the uplifting effects of trying out some of their creative ideas and suggestions! If you see something here and like it, take a minute to reach out to whomever submitted it to let them know.

It is important for our mental health and well-being to stay connected, stay calm, and remember that we are #StrongerTogether. Physical distance doesn't have to mean social isolation!

We invite you to send us mental health promotion ideas (videos, pictures, projects, etc.) anytime, and we'll add them to this site. Click here for our submissions guidelines and instructions!
