August is Family Fun Month!

Happy Back-to-School Season!

Whether you’re a teacher stepping back into your superhero suit, a parent desperately trying to get their kids back on schedule, a student overwhelmed with excitement and nerves for a fresh school experience, or even a person annoyed with the sudden increase in traffic, the back-to-school season affects us all. 

  • Stress is contagious. With the new school year comes stress and anxiety. We’ve got some tips for you to combat stress before it trickles to those around you. Check out our blog on overcoming anxiety and stress in your life, particularly during this hectic season. 
  • Fun for the whole family. Proactively setting up your and your family’s mental health for success is as simple as authentic connection and organic growth. August is Family Fun Month, and a great time to incorporate more fun things before the fall semester takes off! Read our blog for ideas to celebrate Family Fun Month with you and yours!
  • Creating a culture of altruism. The back-to-school season can be tough on a lot of families. A little help goes a long way. Learn more in our blog about how to incorporate altruism during back-to-school activities. If you want to get involved now, you can drop off school supplies in our “Pay It Forward” Pantry at the Fort Worth Office!
