On Thursday, September 12th, Crestwood welcomed guest speaker, Anastasia from the
Youth Wellness Network to speak to students about mental health and well-being. The three big
topics discussed were:
- Self-awareness: how being more aware of yourself leads to the ability to change the
things in our life that we want to improve on
- Self-esteem/self-love: how building confidence comes from within despite how often we find
ourselves searching elsewhere for acceptance and validation
- Authentic self: how there is strength in vulnerability and how that vulnerability can set us free
from the way we think we ‘need to be’ in this world.
The Youth Wellness Network will be working with Crestwood throughout the year to implement
more exciting assemblies and initiatives. Any students interested in becoming more involved with
these upcoming initiatives should visit Ms. Somerville in the Guidance office for more information.
