Last month was Su***de Prevention and Awareness Month, and the School-Based Health Center team along with their Youth Advisory Board spread awareness about this incredibly important campaign through a number of ways.

Highlights included the opening Chalking Event, classroom presentations, social media blasts, and culminated with a large lunchtime tabling event. Special shoutout to our therapist at Wood who worked alongside school administrators to host a similar campaign at the middle school. #alamedafamilyservices #schoolbasedafs

Today is World Mental Health Day. We ALL have mental health, just like we all have physical health. When you take care of your mental health, you are just as equally taking care of your overall health and well being. Let us make a point to prioritize our mental health today and everyday.

Here are some ideas on how you can take care of your mental health today:
Rest
Drink water
Go outside
Read a book
Write a letter
Listen to music
Connect with a friend

A note from Katherine Schwartz, Executive Director of Alameda Family Services:

On September 21, 2021 Alameda City Council took a historic step forward on the City of Alameda's path towards finding a compassionate alternative to policing for Alamedans experiencing a mental health crisis.

By unanimously approving Alameda Family Services' proposal for crisis mental health services that would partner with the Alameda Fire Department for a 24/7 response to nonviolent and noncriminal emergency calls, the city cemented their commitment to wellbeing and right action.

Alameda Family Services is honored and humbled to receive this grant and will act with integrity and dedication in its ongoing efforts to support the community of Alameda.

I want to personally thank everyone who came out to support Alameda Family Services both via written correspondence and zoom participation. It was the community support that convinced the council. We could not have done it without you! Thank you.

5 phrases to repeat to yourself at the start of the week:

1. I will give energy to what I need to give energy to and I will rest where I need to rest.
2. I am allowed to ask for help (even for the things that I feel like I should be able to handle myself).
3. I may not know what lies ahead, but I know that I am still free to create. I am free to act on courage with the things I make.
4. I will have gratitude for the little things even while I wait for the bigger things to fall in place.
5. Years from now, I will look back and I will find that I was growing in ways I could not see at the time.

Which number resonates with you the most for this week? Thank you to @morganharpernichols for the beautiful artwork and words. #alamedafamilyservices

For some families and students this school year brings both excitement and anxiety as the Delta variant surges and the vaccination remains unavailable for children under twelve.

Additionally, students may feel nervous about social interactions or worried about having fallen behind academically. It may take time for some students to feel comfortable and back in the swing of things while others will jump back in without any hesitation.

Anxiety in kids often looks like irritability or defiance. Giving kids an opportunity to talk about how they are feeling and to develop strategies for managing feelings can help with the transition.

If you need someone to talk to, please don't hesitate to reach out. We are here to help! Call us at (510)629-6210. #alamedafamilyservices

Did you know that asking someone directly if they are thinking about su***de will not make them suicidal and can actually help? Most will be relieved someone cares enough to start the conversation.

In honor of Su***de Prevention Week and #WorldSu***dePreventionDay, @selfcareisforeveryone and @afspnational partnered together to create these conversation guides. Check out their accounts for more information and tips for having these challenging conversations around su***de.

The AFS Early Childhood & Family Support Services Division spent late July and early August getting child care centers and play yards ready for the start of our new program year.

Teachers and direct service staff participated in online trainings, organized their classrooms, created lesson plans, conducted parent orientations, and took a trip to the Lakeshore Learning Store where they were able to purchase toys, supplies, and materials at discounted prices. Looking forward to a great (and safe!) school year! #alamedafamilyservices

Surround yourself with friends who support you. Pay attention to those who build you up, help you feel safe, make you feel heard, celebrate you instead of being jealous of you, respect your boundaries, communicate instead of manipulate. Be conscious of where and who you give your energy to knowing that it flows freely back to you. Thank you to @blessthemessy for the beautiful words and illustration.

And remember, we are here for you If you need someone to talk to. #alamedafamilyservices

Stressed out? For #TakeCareThursday, here are a few strategies to unravel the mess when your mind gets a little too busy:

- Get it out of your head by writing it down.
- Take 10 minutes for a screen-free break.
- Create a to-do list and do one thing at a time, and then enjoy checking things off as you get them done!
- Whatever's on your mind, say it out loud instead of keeping it.
