October is National Emotional Wellness Month. Stress is part of life, and in small doses, can actually be beneficial to our health. However, for some, stress can be overwhelming; leading to a mental health crisis. Stress if just one cause that can lead to a mental health concern. Millions of Americans are affected by mental health conditions every year, affecting every age group. Waterford Graded School District wants you to know that there is help out there. If you ever have concerns about how mental health could be affecting your child while at school, please contact the District RN, Chris McMahon (262-514-8250, ext: 6514); the District LPN, Kim Allen (262-514-8250, ext: 1056), or the Director of Student & Staff Services, Jane Aegerter (262-514-8250, ext: 1051). In addition, WGSD offers our families help through Aurora’s Student and Family Assistance Program (SFAP). Help begins as soon as you make the call. Give the SFAP program a call at 1-800-236-3231.
