CHECK YOUR MOOD WEEK for 11th graders on Oct. 28th - Nov. 1st
Grossmont High School is partnering with San Diego Youth Services for the 7th year in a row to offer “Check Your Mood” to all 9th & 11th graders. This program focuses on educating youth and their families on depression and reducing the stigma around seeking help for mental health issues. On October 28th through November 1st (11th grade) and December 2nd-6th (9th grade), SDYS will be presenting curriculum in classrooms and providing additional support for students that express interest and/or need.
Parent awareness is integral to the success of this program. Please visit these links for additional information: SDYS Here Now website & Parent Powerpoint. You can preview what your child will learn and find out how you can help. Please click here for the passive parent permission slip. If you would like your child to opt out of the program, please return the bottom portion of the form to the Grossmont Resource Center. For additional information, contact Julianna Manuel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
