As we welcome families back to school, we hope you were able to take some time over the summer to enjoy moments with your family and friends. As you are preparing your students to begin another school year, we want you to remember the importance of parental mental health. The August Mental Health Newsletter (English) (Spanish) emphasizes the importance of parents’ mental health and outlines steps for healthy coping strategies. As a caregiver to children, it is important that you take the time to care for yourself as well!
