Hello 8th-11th Grade HAWKS Families,

Last week we sent communications via our school messenger platform about an upcoming opportunity for your 8th-11th grade students. We are excited to report a successful first week with our community partner [YAM]. Students were able to have focused and relevant conversations about Mental Health and methods to maintain mental well-being.

The UTHealth Houston Youth Aware of Mental Health (YAM) program is an evidence-based program delivered by certified facilitators to students in the classroom setting. YAM encourages discussion of mental health topics and suicide prevention in order to help youth develop coping skills and resiliency.

YAM will continue to push into  the following classes: 8th Grade-Health , 9th Grade - Interpersonal Studies, 10G Project Based Research, and 11G Junior Seminar on each of the dates below every Wednesday and Thursday (students will meet with YAM during one class period each week)

The dates are as follows:

Wednesday, 1/24

Thursday, 1/25

Wednesday, 1/31

Thursday, 2/1

We are very excited to partner with YAM at our school as they are a program that has been in high demand this school year due to the realities Youth face with mental wellness. Their presence will continue to aid in sparking the conversation of mental health (and how to receive support) for our students. Having the support of family and friends can make a huge impact on mental well-being. Be sure to check-in with your student about what they learned and how they are applying the skills. Feel free to reach out to Mrs. Warner- Middle School Counselor or Mrs. Troncoso- High School Counselor if you have any questions.
