Summer is a time of rest, relaxation, and recharge. It can also be lonely for students as they get out of routine, aren’t with their friends as much, and lose some structure. The mental health and wellness resource page provides information that can help parents and students navigate the summer. Mental Health and Wellness Resource Page
