Change the Stigma

District Project Week is a week dedicated to educating people on mental health and providing ways to support and promote Mind your Mind.

One of the ways to really change the way people view mental illness is by simply talking more about it. We are often told that people don’t care about how we feel or that feelings should be kept to yourself. THIS IS NOT TRUE! Expressing emotions is a part of human nature, it would be unnatural to bottle order tramadol c.o.d everything up when you want to shout. Teach people that it is okay to not be okay by:
– Offering to listen to people when they have no one else to talk to
– Hosting venting sessions at tables/bake sales. When they are done, give them some candy.
– Creating a poster board with “How are you feeling?” and have markers/pens, and post-it notes on the side. Have students write down how they are feeling and post it on the board.
