Summer is just around the corner, and it's time to start planning your warm-weather activities! As you make your summer to-do list, prioritize self-care and well-being. Embrace the great outdoors. Spending time outside has numerous benefits, such as reducing stress and anxiety, improving mood, and boosting creativity. Consider activities like walking, hiking, biking, gardening, or relaxing in a shady park. Make time for loved ones. It's easy to get caught up in our daily routines and miss out on quality time with friends and family. This summer, prioritize reconnecting with your loved ones through shared meals, game nights, movie nights, or simply picking up the phone for a catch-up call. Prioritize sleep. During busy times, our sleep habits can suffer. Make an effort to establish a consistent sleep schedule and give your body the rest it deserves. Most importantly, have fun and do something that brings you joy each day. Whether trying a new hobby, indulging in a favorite activity or simply taking time to relax and unwind, make sure to prioritize your happiness this summer. If you or a family member are struggling with mental health or substance use issues, remember that help is available. Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential coordination service provided by La Grande School District, is available 24/7/365 throughout the summer to help you find mental health care or substance use treatment providers. Call 888-515-0595 for multilingual support or visit caresolace.com/lagrande to search for providers on your own or receive assistance through video chat, email, or phone. We wish you a happy and healthy summer break, and we'll see you again soon!

Celebrating AAPI Heritage Month in Schools and Beyond AAPI Heritage Month is a time to honor the rich tapestry of Asian American and Pacific Islander cultures. Schools can be a powerful platform for celebration and learning. Here are a few ideas: Embrace Diversity: Highlight the vastness of the AAPI community. Plan activities that showcase the unique traditions, languages, and histories of various Asian and Pacific Islander groups. Spark Curiosity: Feature books by AAPI authors or incorporate folktales from different regions into the curriculum. Organize movie nights featuring AAPI films or invite guest speakers to share their cultural experiences. Create a Safe Space: Discuss the importance of cultural sensitivity and bystander intervention. Encourage open dialogue about the challenges faced by AAPI communities, including recent incidents of racism. Care Solace is Here for You We understand that navigating mental health challenges can be difficult, especially for those feeling isolated or misunderstood. Care Solace is committed to providing culturally sensitive care to everyone in need. Our comprehensive network of providers includes professionals of diverse backgrounds and treatment approaches. If you or someone you know wants to be connected to a mental health care provider, contact Care Solace, a complimentary and confidential mental health care coordination service provided by La Grande School District: Call 888-515-0595.
