This week is Mental Health Awareness Week!!! There is often a lot of shame and guilt around our Mental Health struggles, when the truth is it is common and okay to seek support or help when things are too much. Remember to wear Green this week to show your support for Mental Health for all Griffins. The STEP team will be hosting activities and sharing opportunities to care for our individual and collective mental health here at Palumbo.
