Spread the Word!

From Holly Guelig, M.Ed.

Professional School Counselor

Our minds are much like houses; the messages we hear from others become the walls we live in while the messages we send to ourselves impact the condition of our 'house.'

What's in your coping toolbox to handle past, current, and future internal and external messages that might need some repairing?

Do you have enough tools?

Do you know which tool is best for the job?

Guelig will discuss what mental health is and isn’t. She will address the stigmas around mental health, and redefine what it means to be “normal." You will leave with researched-based, creative, concrete, and impactful techniques to help you challenge and work through unhelpful thinking and coping.
