Mental Health

Most adolescents experience positive mental health, but one in five has had a serious mental health disorder at some point in their life.  Problems with mental health often start early in life. In fact, half of all mental health problems begin by age 14. The good news is that promoting positive mental health can prevent some problems from starting. For young people who already have mental health disorders, early intervention and treatment can help lessen the impact on their lives.

Mental health disorders can interfere with regular activities and daily functioning, such as relationships, schoolwork, sleeping, and eating.  If you feel your child is experiencing a mental health concern talk to your school counselor or nurse, or find additional resources at Mental Health Partners.

If you or your child is experiencing a mental health crisis call: 1-844-493-TALK

That may be why Elementary Counselor Olivia Hyten has taken up the wooden strategy game, virtually, with her students from Monarch PK-8.
