Happy Wellness Wednesday!
Monday marked the beginning of Suicide Prevention Week. During this week individuals and organizations around the country join their voices together in order to broadcast the message that suicide can be prevented, and to give as many people as possible the tools and resources to support themselves and those around them. To view films about suicide prevention, visit:www.directingchangeCA.org.
For tools and resources specific for schools and youth, visit the Each Mind Matters Suicide Prevention Week Toolkit: www.eachmindmatters.org/SPW2018.
If you would like a counselor to visit your classes to discuss suicide prevention, please let me know.
Make an inspiration collage and hang it where you can see it. Use it to help generate new ideas and thoughts when you need them.
Ask someone “how are you today?” Practice active listening.
Please continue to encourage students to experience the Wellness Wednesday Relaxation Lounge in the Counseling Center at lunch on Wednesdays. It’s the perfect spot to de-stress and decompress. Nurse Wegener also has a relaxation space for students who need.
Have a wonderful day everyone!

Over the past few days, the National City Police Department has responded to several concerning incidents related to drug overdoses which involved some Sweetwater High School students. The Police department has been working closely with our Sweetwater High School administrators to both share information and identify the root of the problem.
As we continue with our investigation, we are encouraging parents to talk to their student about the overall negative effects of potentially life threatening. Please check to see that your student does not have any suspicious paraphernalia or packages in their belongings or at home.
We will continue to work with our law enforcement to make sure that all of our students are safe and away from drugs. Please contact the National City police department at (619)336-4411 or Sweetwater High school at (619)474-9700 if you have any questions or concerns.
Common signs and symptoms of a drug overdose may include:
- Disorientation or confusion
- Unsteady walking
- Agitation or paranoia
- Dilated pupils
- Slow, shallow or difficulty breathing
- Cool, clammy skin OR high body temperature
- Lips or fingernails are blue in color
