Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Project

The CHEC Minds Matter (CMM) club is a group of high school students at our school that have come together because they care about their mental health as well as the mental health of their peers. They have been trained in Mental Health First Aid by Our Minds Matter DC. They hope to fight the stigma around mental health during the 2022-2023 school year through a variety of awareness and supportive events and campaigns at school.

They feel that these supplies will help them achieve those goals through providing CHEC students with supportive sensory tools and food to garner interest from their peers in mental health awareness.

The group will use tools such as the BINGLALA 50 PCs minipop keychains to help their peers learn to calm their emotions when stressed or overwhelmed in class. The 300pcs Mental Health Inspirational Stickers and the Green Ribbon Awareness pins will be used to spread mental health awareness. CMM will use the food such as the Pringles and Granola Bars as motivators for their peers to participate in activities.
