Fall Semester, 2020 Distance Learning Wellness Center Update:
The John O’Connell Wellness Team misses you!
We miss having you drop in to say hi, checking in during the passing period while you grab a cup of water, tea and snacks, hearing about your classes, clubs you're in, how you're doing, and the accomplishments you're having as you navigate high school!
We are experiencing a global pandemic that has changed all of our worlds dramatically and caused tremendous loss and stress in our communities. People and communities are rising up and using their voices to bring to light the injustices that the Black community, Indigenous communities, and other communities of color have been experiencing for generations.
While we all do our part in slowing the rate of COVID and doing our best in distance learning, we know that it is not easy and that you may be feeling overwhelmed, stressed, and hurt, or maybe you're feeling motivated and empowered to create and participate in change.
Whether you're feeling stressed, worried, sad, angry, fighting with friends or family, have questions about sex or drugs, need to see our nurse, need to get tested for STDs, want to make an appointment at a local health center, want therapy, or want to share your goals and accomplishments from us-we are here to support you!
