Mental Wellness Week is an activity run through Active Minds, a new club promoting mental wellness, during the week of April 16-19.

Tuesday’s theme is reducing stress and will feature activities held in the cafeteria during all lunches. Activities include games such as “scribble chase”, coloring, and having students share their ways of coping with stress.

“Learning to cope with stress is very important,” school social worker Erica Bettwy said. “Especially for high school students, they have to find healthy ways to relieve their stress and deal with challenges they face today.”

Active Minds will host a parent work shop tonight beginning at 7 p.m. in the career center. The night will be divided into three stations called depression and suicide awareness, stress and anxiety, and resiliency.

Depression screenings of the junior class also begins today and will continue through tomorrow.
