Did you notice that there are 100 pinwheels spinning in the Courtyard? They were planted by Minding Your Mind and CAST to inspire us to break the stigma surrounding mental health. 75 of them are blue/yellow, our school colors, and 25 of them are green/yellow to demonstrate that 1 in 4 teens will suffer from a mental health condition. We can all reach out to each other and come together for mental health.
