May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Crowning of Mary, Mother’s Day, First Holy Communion, promotions and graduations – May is a month filled with traditions that bring the community together. We may be experiencing feelings of loss, uncertainty, and anxiety as many of our important community events will continue to look different this year. Our school counselor, Ms. Shaw has tools and resources on her webpage to help families prioritize and take care of their mental health during this particularly trying time.

Some highlights from Ms. Shaw’s webpage:

  • Seattle Children’s Hospital has curated an excellent list of resources on Supporting Mental Wellness and Family Life During COVID-19. There are resources on a wide range of topics including emotional regulation during the pandemic, family safety, and much more.
  • On May 26th, PNW Parent Education is offering a free online education event called Digital Safety 101. This event will help parents find ways to balance their family’s digital life with boundaries, etiquette, and good judgment. Learn more and register here.
