“Mental health is Health” Website Resource
As you may know, this week is the start of the Take Care of Our Flames, a system-wide initiative supporting student mental health and wellness. Keeping on with that mission, this week's lifestyle tip is sharing a fantastic free resource you can use to help support your wellbeing. Please read below for more information on the website and how to use it, and information on a few upcoming Wellness Center events this week.
"Mental health is Health" Website:
Features/How to use it:
- Depending on how you would like to navigate the website, you are free to choose any route you'd like. Each category and tab provides resources, information, and uplifting messages to help you with whatever you might be going through
- When you open it you'll see that it's organized in three major sections: "For You", "For a Friend", and "SOS". Click on what best suits your needs.
- On the "For you" page, you are directed to answer how you're doing? You can either respond by filling out how "you're feeling" (angry, anxious, lonely, stressed, etc.) or what "you're experiencing" (a break-up, abuse, loss, social media issues, money issues, etc.). You are then led through a guided flow of support.
- The "For a friend" page provides signs to identify when someone is "not doing okay" (what to look out for), how to react in a supportive manner while setting boundaries for yourself, and suggestions on what to tell them. This is a great resource for anyone looking into being and playing the role of a good supportive friend.
- Recognizing we all need someone to talk to from time to time, the "SOS" page shares resources and free hotlines for people you can talk to in confidence.
