Mental Health Support: D-C FIghts the Stigma

  • D-C Fights the Stigma is Dundee-Crown's mental health campaign, but it is more than that.  The goals of D-C Fights the Stigma inform everything that we do at Dundee-Crown.  As a campaign, we aim to:                                         

    1. Increase awareness and educate students and staff about mental health and mental illness. Mental health is an aspect of physical health.
    2. Destigmatize mental health issues; emphasizing that depression and anxiety are experienced by most if not all people at one time or another. To struggle is to be human.
    3. Destigmatize help-seeking behaviors. Some statistics suggest that 80% of affected teens will not seek help when it is needed for fear of being labelled as weak.
    4. Increase EMPATHY through story-telling. Story-telling is both healing and revealing to others fostering compassion.
    5. Emphasize that we all need to actively practice mental health promoting behaviors; mental health CANNOT be maintained or promoted passively.

  • Get Out of Your Head Day/Day of Service - Salga de su cabeza Día / Día de servicio

    Sometimes we can get “stuck in our heads” or stuck in “mind-wandering mode”. When we are “stuck in our heads” we are less likely to be happy, more likely to worry, and often we are not engaged in what we are doing. This can impact both your physical and mental health, your performance in school or at work, and your relationships. In order to Be Your Best Self it is key to Get Out of Your Head and back into your life. 

     

    Each year since the 2018-2019 school year, D-C staff and students have spent a couple of hours during The Get Out of Your Head Day/Day of Service to set curriculum entirely aside to do something a little different.

    On Get Out of Your Head Day/Day of Service, staff and students have the opportunity to pick an activity that they are passionate about, to try something new, or to go out into the community to volunteer. 

    The day is all about:

    • taking a mental health break
    • meeting others with similar interests
    • having time with student leaders and staff with similar passions for an activity
    • giving back to the community, and
    • learning something new

    Visit the PSL page for information about this year’s Get Out of Your Head Day/Day of Service.

    A veces podemos quedarnos "atascados en nuestras cabezas" o en "modo de distracción mental". Cuando estamos "atascados en nuestras cabezas", es menos probable que seamos felices, más probabilidades de preocuparnos y, a menudo, no estamos comprometidos con lo que estamos haciendo. Esto puede afectar tanto su salud física como mental, su desempeño en la escuela o en el trabajo y sus relaciones. Para ser tu mejor yo, es clave salir de tu cabeza y volver a tu vida.

     

    Cada año desde el año escolar 2018-2019, el personal y los estudiantes de DC han pasado un par de horas durante el Día / Día de servicio de The Get Out of Your Head para dejar el plan de estudios a un lado por completo y hacer algo un poco diferente.

     

    En Get Out of Your Head Day / Day of Service, el personal y los estudiantes tienen la oportunidad de elegir una actividad que les apasione, probar algo nuevo o salir a la comunidad para ser voluntarios.

     

    El día se trata de:

    • tomando un descanso de salud mental
    • conocer a otras personas con intereses similares
    • Pasar tiempo con líderes estudiantiles y personal con pasiones similares por una actividad.
    • retribuir a la comunidad, y
    • aprendiendo algo nuevo
