Healthy Minds is a new blog for parents, educators, and community-based providers who are interested in supporting student mental health and wellness. It represents a collaboration between FCPS’ Office of Intervention and Prevention Services and the Prevention Unit of the Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services. It is part of the Healthy Minds Fairfax initiative, which is designed to reinforce emotional wellness in youth and families.
Healthy Minds will include tips and strategies for increasing wellness and resiliency, as well as fostering success at home, at school, and in the community. Information about special events and other relevant news updates will be shared, too. New content will be posted weekly.
