September 20th-24th

Mental Health: Awareness and Resources

Think critically about the effect that mental health has on our lives - including school, jobs, and relationships with others. Consider some of the issues that mentally ill people struggle with in order to do things that others may view “normal” or “simple”. September 10th is significant to mental health because it is the World Suicide Prevention Day.
Mental health disabling issues such as depression, are among the most common of the long list of complex and interrelated factors that can contribute to the feelings of pain and hopelessness underling suicide. 

Reflect on your experience with mental health and how it can be positively encouraged in our college and community:
•    How can we help support students and friends with mental illness - especially during tough times, crisis, or trauma? 
•    What kinds of mental health resources exist in different countries? Does this affect the country’s overall physical health?
•    Why do you think the suicide rates in the U.S. are so high? Are those rates as high in other countries?
•    How has the Covid-19 pandemic added to this stress? How are people dealing with this sad situation?
