Dear Parents and Guardians, On February 6th LHS will be presenting an assembly to all students. The overarching topic of the assembly is mental health. As we all know, this is a topic that is often misunderstood, ignored, and often minimalized. Because of this, many individuals do not receive the proper assistance to manage their mental health. We hope students gain an introductory understanding of mental health issues and ways in which they can gain assistance for themselves or others. I have included a link to our presenter’s website www.Hand-Sleight.com Throughout the week of January 30th, there will be a series of short informational segments during announcements that are focused on mental health. We hope to create a sense of curiosity about the topic leading up to the assembly. We will have staff available to address students that may need assistance after the assembly. Included in this eNews are resources and links for parents should question arise at home regarding this topic. Below are some on-line resources that may be of assistance to you. http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/teen-depression/home/ovc-20164553 http://kidshealth.org/en/parents/understanding-depression.html?WT.ac=ctg# If you ever feel there is an immediate need for assistance please call 911. If you are seeking non-emergency mental health assistance consult your family doctor/pediatrician who can provide you with additional resources. Greg Fuller Principal
