raising awareness, promoting wellness and reducing stigma around mental health

AWARENESS CREATES CHANGE

YWC Ambassadors raise awareness, promote self-care and reduce stigma around mental health through campus YWC CAMPAIGNS. Parents, teachers, students, and community... let's take the first step by learning the signs of emotional distress so that we can reach out when someone is struggling.

We create change when we learn the facts rather than making assumptions. We create change when we show compassion instead of judgment. How do you respond when you hear a friend has just broken their arm or has a physical illness? Now think about how you would respond if someone told you they were bipolar or they struggled with depression? Mental illness is a disorder that disrupts a person’s thinking, feelings, mood, ability to relate to others, and daily functioning. Mental health disorders are not the result of personal weakness, poor upbringing, or lack of character.  -NAMI

YWC CAMPAIGNS

The YOU MATTER campaigns are all about celebrating every person's value and worth!  This includes our students, our teachers, and families in our community. The goal of the YWC is to help students remember that their life matters, that we care about them and that it is OK to ask for help. There are support resources available on campus and in our community.
