My Students

I work as the Mental Health Specialist at a public high school. We have wonderful, smart, resilient, incredible students who are under an unimaginable amount of stress.

My students are experiencing alarming rates of anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts, and my goal each day is to support and love them.

I work at a school where we have a unique mix of high achieving students, affluent students, and students in need of housing and food support. While the reasons may be different, each student here experiences stress and struggle. I do my best each day to support them all in whatever way they need.

My Project

Students come to me every day to share their struggles with depression, anxiety, suicidal thoughts, family stress, academic pressure, and so much more. In and of itself, my office is not a calming place. It is stark and academic-like, and my students have noticed. One student told me, "kids come here when they are sad, and your office just looks sad and makes them more sad, except for you being there". I would love my office to reflect the calming support that I try my best daily to offer my students. Being a teenager is hard, especially in this era of social media. These supplies will both help make my office more calming and supportive, as well as be given to students for de-stressing and anxiety reducing techniques.
