Wellness Wednesday: Checking in Can Save a Life

If you or a loved one were to experience symptoms of the coronavirus, hopefully you would get tested as soon as possible to stay healthy. Why wait if it can save a life?

Mental health is no different. As we experience or see any symptoms like withdrawal, isolation, unexplained anger, sadness, or other major changes we should check in with loved ones as soon as possible. It could save a life.

Due to the impact of COVID-19, it’s even a good time to check in on loved ones who you aren’t normally worried about, because sometimes social or emotional struggles may not be as obvious.

Everyone could use a regular check-up, and taking the time to check in may save a life.

If you would like to “check-in” on your student’s mental health, we invite you to sign up for a FREE, online mental health screening by following this link, or visit wellness.jordandistrict.org.

If you are concerned about your child, don’t hesitate to reach out for help from your school’s counselors, school psychologist, or school staff for additional support. It’s always a good time to check-in and see how things are going in order to keep each other healthy during this challenging time.

We hope you stay healthy and well!
