Mental Health Awareness Month is celebrated across the nation. In California, Each Mind Matters—a mental health advocacy organization—has promoted the theme #HopeForChange for 2021.
The purpose of this guide is to provide tools, tips, and resources that school leaders, staff, and educators can use for Mental Health Awareness Month. As adults on campus, you are in a unique position to identify students who are having personal struggles, engage them in conversations, and offer them hope and resources. We have created this toolkit to support you as well as help bring hope to your campus during this unprecedented time.
