High school students are more likely to suffer from some form of mental illness because of the many pressures of high school, including schoolwork, trying to fit in, and worrying about the future. This week, members of the Class of 2023 talk about why it is our Christian duty to look out for others, not just during May, but all year round. Counselors Mrs. Miller and Mrs. Penberthy share warning signs of mental illness as well as tips for caring for one’s own health and that of others. To show support for Mental Health Awareness, t-shirts will be sold to benefit the National Alliance for Mental Illness. They feature a semi-colon, the national symbol of mental health, which signifies that a person’s story is never over; it will continue. St. Paul tells us in Philippians 2:4, “Let each of you not only look to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.” What are you doing to actively care for your own mental health as well as those of your family, friends, and colleagues?
