The Power of Self Care 

Please read our April 2018 Newsletter for a full update.

 Executive Director’s Note

Maintaining mental health and emotional well-being is a daily practice, and springtime is a great opportunity to renew our commitment to that discipline.  Across the Steve Fund’s work with students, staff & faculty, and parents & families across the country, many students share their self care tips, but many others still see self care as indulgent or unproductive.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Self care is how we cultivate the potent habit of treating ourselves well –both physically and mentally.  This month’s newsletter outlines some resources we hope you’ll find helpful in maintaining your own self carepractice and to share with your peers as the school year marches on.

Be well,

Anuja Khemka
Executive Director

We are taking action. Learn more.
