In an effort to bring attention to mental illness in their community and around the state, staff at Churchill Junior High hosted a grand yoga night for students, families and community members.
“We’ve seen an increase in mental illness not just in our school but across the district and state,” said Churchill assistant principal Trent Hendricks. “Yoga is a great platform to help students and the community realize how to balance themselves both mentally and physically.”
The evening kicked off with remarks from National Alliance on Mental Illness school-based program manager Julie Schwartz. Participants then gathered for a large-scale yoga session.
