The end of the school year is right around the corner and it brings an exciting time for change and new chapters in students’ lives. Erika’s Lighthouse recognizes this may also be a stressful and overwhelming season for students and teachers. Whether it’s state testing or finals we acknowledge that this may make it harder for students to focus on their mental health.

Take the Pledge for Mental Health Awareness Month

It is time for us to refocus our energies and thrive – mentally and physically. That is why we are challenging you to Take the Pledge. This May, during Mental Health Awareness Month, Erika’s Lighthouse has launched the Positivity Pledge. The Positivity Pledge is an opportunity for you to take control of your mental health while putting some good in the world to inspire those around you.

The Positivity Pledge

Throughout the month of May, Erika’s Lighthouse is challenging you to challenge yourself. With themed weeks focused on Nutrition & Well-Being, Mindfulness, Exercise, and Gratitude you have an opportunity to promote positive mental health in your life and the lives of those around you through positive actions, self-care, healthy behaviors, and social connections.

We should embrace the technologies around us to forge new connections with friends, family, and others through social media, conferencing, and more. The #PositivityPledge is designed to promote those connections through #ShareSunday, #MentalHealthMonday, #SelfcareThursday, and #FamilyFriendsFriday. 

Join us today and Take the Positivity Pledge as a step in supporting your own mental health! This May’s Mental Health Awareness Month may be the most important month of the year – don’t miss out!
