Last week was our yearly Mental Health Awareness Campaign to support the people that are struggling with some problems that they have going on in their life. This campaign is held to show people that they are not alone in the world. No one should feel like they are alone, when there are plenty of people that are here to fully support each other. The South High student council made some amazing posters to raise awareness and to make sure that students would participate in the following week. On Monday the color that was suggested for our students to wear was Green for depression, Tuesday was purple for eating disorders, Wednesday was blue for stress/anxiety, and Thursday was yellow for suicide prevention. The Friday before mental awareness week started the student leadership team had taken time out of their day to make a poster for each individual day. There was an  “I Am Stigma Free” poster signing at the main entrance throughout the week.

There was a special presentation for each day either in the CCC (College Career Center) in B6 and in the auditorium depending on the person or group speaking. To attend the presentations during Titan Time in the auditorium, students must get their agenda signed from the College and career center, administrator, a councilor, a GSA sponsor, Mrs. Seiwert, or Mrs Mariani.

On Monday, October 16th-Depression- There was a special presentation from the Wichita State Office of Diversity and Inclusion in the CCC during Titan time. ( it was open for the Peer-Mentoring Program only)

On Tuesday, October 17th-Eating disorders- There was a presentation from Sheriffs’s Deputy Narciso Narvais in the auditorium during Titan Time which was available to everyone who got a pass.

On Wednesday, October 18th- Stress/Anxiety- There was a presentation from National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) in the auditorium during Titan Time, it was open to all who got a pass.

On Thursday, October 19th-Suicide prevention- The special presentation was the Hope Show (concluding student speakers event). Thank you to everyone who participated.

Hope poster to support those in need.
