Mental Health

May 13, 2022

Dear Chimacum Families,

May is Mental Health Awareness Month- a time to raise awareness of the challenges many people in our society face with their emotional well being. If the pandemic has revealed anything, it is that mental health challenges, whether they are diagnosed or not, pose serious problems for families and individuals. These challenges are compounded by the stigma we attach to identifying and addressing mental health issues, whether they be depression, loneliness, or anxiety brought on by the pandemic, or serious disorders whose symptoms are exacerbated by the pandemic. 

I am proud and grateful to live in a community that supports emotional and mental well being and a cornerstone of a thriving community. A bow of gratitude to the dedicated counselors and behavioral health support teams in our schools, and to all of our community partners who work with our students and families to bring care and support, and reduce the stigma.
