As Thanksgiving approaches, we are grateful for opportunities to support positive mental health at WHS above and beyond daily staff interactions with our students. With the financial support of Jan and Dave Ashby, we hosted Tony Hoffman in September, and he spoke to all of our students about the connection between mental health and substance use. In October, Family Resource Center offered free teen screens to evaluate for symptoms of depression, anxiety, and substance use. This month, we welcomed Faith Cisco, owner of Overcomer Boxing Studio in Wapak, who talked to interested students about how she uses and encourages others to use physical activity to cope with mental health issues.
