Maintaining emotional wellness is very important to one's overall well-being. Every day, individuals may experience events or situations that create anxiety and stress. Although stress is common and can be positive in nature, it becomes problematic when it makes you feel overwhelmed and continues for a long period of time. Taking care of your emotional health is just as important as your physical health.
If your child(ren) may need mental health support there are professionals that can provide support at their school, such as school counselors, school psychologists, mental health specialists and school social workers. Any trusted adult at your child's school, like a teacher, counselor or an administrator, will be able to help you connect to school based mental health support.
