New Wellness Space for Students!

Creating Safe Spaces

The SE Wellness Space is now officially open! This project began when Counselor Mitchell was honored with a SWAG Award two years ago and chose to use the grant to create a sensory room. Fully understanding that students sometimes struggle with emotional self-regulation and stress management, it was important to develop a safe place to reflect, center, and refocus. The room is equipped with fountains, sensory tools, self-help books, mindfulness activities, and a lounge area for when they just need a moment to regroup. Part of our goal is to make sure our students know it's okay to not be okay and we encourage self-care moments. Special thanks to Huntington Bank and The Michigan Chronicle for the SWAG grant that made this vision come to light.
