Okaloosa County School District Highlights Mental Health Awareness Month

Okaloosa County School District

During May, Okaloosa County Schools and District offices will observe Mental Health Awareness Month by engaging in fun activities focused on helping our school communities, students, and staff promote mental wellness, providing mental health resources, and helping foster conversations at home around mental wellness. Mental Health is not merely the absence of illness but rather a state of thriving and resilience.  By empowering teachers, engaging parents, fostering community support, and addressing stigma, we pave the way for a brighter, more compassionate future, especially for our children! If you or your child need help with mental wellness, please see our list of OCSD Counseling Resources.

For the 2023-2024 school year, the Student Services Department and our mental health providers have developed a monthly Mental Health Matters focus. Each month, our mental health team, along with school administration, faculty, staff, and students, will focus on one specific component of mental wellness and practice self-care activities and resources to develop that area of focus for the month.
