Care Solace Article - It’s National Thank You Month!

Thank you for everything

Thank You Month is a time for us to spread kindness by thanking all the people who’ve helped us along the way.

Did you know that gratitude makes you happier? Appreciation has been shown to lessen symptoms of depression and improve overall mental health. By thanking others for their support and kindness, we also help our own mental well-being. Taking time to say “thank you” can be a small moment that makes a big difference in someone’s day. As you go through this month, spread gratitude on campus by thanking a friend, teacher, staff member, or anyone who has made a difference in your life.

As you reflect on how you’ve been supported through the years, there might be moments where you realize you need a little extra support for yourself.
