    May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Grand Forks Public Schools believe mental health needs to be a top priority. We are joining the national campaign to raise awareness about the connection between physical health and mental health, through the theme Fitness #4Mind4Body. The campaign is meant to educate and inform individuals about how eating healthy foods, gut health, managing stress, exercising, and getting enough sleep can go a long way in making you healthy all around.

    Mental health is essential to everyone’s overall health and well-being, and mental illnesses are common and treatable. So much of what we do physically impact us mentally; it’s important to pay attention to both your physical health and your mental health.

    Mental Health America has created fact sheets with further details about how diet and nutrition, exercise, sleep, and stress can affect your mental health.
