Mental Health Minute 
Issue 4
Week of 4/13 - 4/17

The Avon Central School Mental Health team would like to offer support for our kids and families by providing weekly on-line tips and resources. We understand this can be a stressful time for families and that you are receiving a lot of information from many different directions. Taking this into account, our team has decided to pull some of the best information we can find and bring it to you in small weekly installments.
