Care Solace Article: Mental Health Awareness Month

Mental Health Awareness Month - It's Okay to Ask For Help

For Mental Health Awareness Month, we have an opportunity to break the stigma around mental health in our campus by talking openly, compassionately, and kindly to each other. No one should ever struggle alone.

School staff are the backbone of student well-being, but remember that you also can’t pour from an empty cup.

During Mental Health Awareness Month, NAMI joins the mental health community to reaffirm our commitment to building our understanding of mental illness, increasing access to treatment and ensuring those who are struggling know they are not alone.

If you or someone you know wants to be connected to a mental health care provider, contact Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential mental health care coordination service provided by Wayne-Westland Community School District:

  • Call 888-515-0595. Multilingual support is available 24/7/365.
  • Visit and either search on your own OR click “Book Appointment” for assistance by video chat, email, or phone.

Don’t hesitate to ask for help, use the resources around you, and never give up hope.
