From the office of our School Psychologist - May is Mental Health Matters Month:ALL


Learning about mental health promotes understanding, advocacy, and increased access to supports.  Malibu High School is dedicated to promoting mental health in our school and in our community.

Did you know half of us will have a mental health challenge over the course of our lifetime? Yet research shows that many people -- particularly young people -- wait a long time to get help due to fears of being labeled or stigmatized. One in five teens and young adults live with a mental health condition, with 50% of them developing by age 14.  The fact is with support and appropriate treatment people with mental health challenges can, and do, get better.

Stop the Stigma.  Learn how you can start with a 3 question, multiple-choice quiz at:

Start the Conversation with a tip sheet of what to say to talk openly and honestly with others who need you to listen at:
