Mental Wellness & Resiliency Nights / Prevention Events

MCSD hosted our first Mental Wellness & Resiliency Night of the 2023-2024 school year on Monday, October 9, 2023 at Murray High School. In addition to a phenomenal conversation about anxiety and school avoidance with Jenny Howe, MCSD’s School Based Mental Health team conducted mental health screeners on students and provided resources to families around mental health and wellbeing. Thank you to Root’d Roadie for partnering with us and providing delicious food!

Our next Mental Wellness & Resiliency night is scheduled for FEBRUARY 1, 2024; “Navigating the Digital Landscape: A Mental Health and Social Media Conversation“. This event will take place at Murray High School at 6pm. We’ll have a guest speaker, Sarah Coyne from Brigham Young University. Social media has been highlighted in state and national news in regards to how it impacts youth and adolescent mental health. She will share harm reduction strategies to help our students engage in technology and social media in prosocial ways. Specifically designed for parents and families in our community, this event explores the intersection of mental health and social media. You will walk away with practical tips, effective communication strategies, answers to common concerns, and armed with the current research on adolescent social media use. This conversation is open to youth ages 11 and up, and we encourage all parents to attend. The conversation aims to empower both parents and their children to navigate social media responsibly and foster positive digital experiences. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn, share and connect for the well-being of our community.

Additionally, we will be hosting mental health screenings that afternoon and evening. Mental health screenings are available for registration here, and will be available beginning at 3pm. If you have any questions about the screenings, please reach out to MCSD Prevention Coordinator, Sierra Marsh.

More Mental Wellness & Resiliency nights are coming! Keep your eyes open for additional dates in the 2023-2024 school year.
