Mental Health Awareness Month

Mackenzie Dickhausen

We interviewed a few people here at Mount Pleasant High School about mental health:

We asked 5 different questions:

  1. Grade? 
  2. Rate you mental health on a scale of 1-10 
  3. Why did you rate it that? 
  4. What do you do to cope? 
  5. How does it affect your everyday life?

The first person we interviewed was Avery Tubbs:

 1.) 11th  2.) 2     3.) ”life just isn’t going well”  4.) sleep/clean  5.) always moody and tired 

The second person we interviewed was Natalie Potter:

 1.)11th   2.) 1.5   3.) overwhelmed and stressed 4.) sleep 5.) unmotivated 

The third person we interviewed was Mr. Stutsman:

1.) teacher  (he’s 26)   2.) 6.5     3.) season, cold, moving  and dark 4.) yoga and music 5.) it effects how he talks to others 

The fourth person we interviewed is Ms. Bacus:

 1.) teacher (she’s 54) 2.) 8    3.) family and work 4.) color, talk to people and journal 5.) plays a role in attitude towards work 

We believe that mental health is very important and it’s something that is very overlooked. People spend so much time thinking and doing other things and just blocking out their mental health until they just can’t do it anymore so they turn to things like drugs and alcohol . It’s important we focus on our personal mental health and make sure everything is okay before things take a bad turn. Happy mental health awareness month
