Did you know... The first American Cinco de Mayo celebrations date back to the 1860s, when Mexicans living in California commemorated the victory of the Mexican army over France at the Battle of Puebla? Today we celebrate Mexico's cultural pride, courage, and resilience.

Wishing a bright and beautiful Cinco de Mayo to our many friends across Colorado and beyond! May your day be filled with music, celebration, and true happiness!

From our EMPOWER Colorado Support group of Parent to Parent of Colorado:

Absolutely love this "We do not need to fix anything or give suggestions. We can simply listen without judgement and be present as they share, and then honor their stories."

This article is about the employee assistance program at CSU, and had such fabulous advice about being curious and talking and mental health that I had to share! May is Mental Health Awareness Month let's talk about mental health!

"Many people often struggle to put into words their own experience with mental health, because they may doubt that they will be understood, or fear that their stories and feelings will be judged by others.

Leading with curiosity through listening is necessary in bringing compassionate understanding to another person’s experience. Curiosity gives us a starting point to check in with our colleagues, leaders and students [all the people in our lives]. We frequently ask each other about physical health and check in if we know a person we are in a relationship with has suffered a physical injury or illness.

We can – and I hope you will — do the same in asking about the mental health of those [around you] we work with while honoring the privacy of their confidentially shared health information.

If you know that [someone] a student or colleague has suffered a death of a loved one, has had a particularly challenging personal or professional experience, or you are aware that a community member has been struggling with their mental health, we can compassionately ask about their experience and then listen. We do not need to fix anything or give suggestions. We can simply listen without judgement and be present as they share, and then honor their stories.

You may ask, “What if I do not know if someone is struggling with their mental health?”

We do not need to be experts to help [someone] a student or colleague – or even a friend or loved one — in a time of need. You may have noticed a change in behavior such as withdrawal, taking more sick time, increased negativity or grumpy responses during interactions, a change in appearance, or truancy from work or class. In general, any shift in baseline behavior and patterns for a person may signal a change in the person’s mental health. The simplest and most caring course of action is to reach out and ask if the person is okay and needs assistance."
