Teacher’s Mental Health Check-In Board Goes Viral For The ‘Beautiful’ Standard It Sets

How many times have you been having a REALLY bad day, but you couldn’t quite explain it to your coworkers/family/friends?In our day-to-day lives, there’s not a lot of room for giving a real answer to “How are you?” But one group of teachers is trying to change all that, starting with their students.Texas teacher Jessie Cayton recently went viral for her mental health “check-in” poster board, where students can explain how they’re feeling with a (private) sticky note. The options include “I’m great,” “I’m meh,” and “I’m struggling.”The idea has exploded on social media, and for good reason.The board may look simple, but it’s an exercise in vulnerability, connection, and self-awareness — all things that the world needs more of.The poster board was originally invented by a high school teacher in San Francisco, Erin Castillo.“Many of us struggle to find the words to ask for help,” Erin explained to BuzzFeed News. “I thought this poster could make it a bit easier for my students to reach out.”

Like many teachers, Jessie has a special knack for coming up with beautiful displays that look like they could easily be on a fancy restaurant menu somewhere.Photo: Instagram/jsscytnAnd recently, one of her poster boards gained a lot of attention on social media.She created a “check-in” board for students to write how they’re feeling by pasting a sticky note with their name on the back.

Coming back to school can be really tough, too. We’re sleepy, or cranky, or anxious, or turned all the way up to 1,000.”

But I’m grateful (especially as the day goes on) to have a little context for why we might be making the choices we are.”Jessie also shared the poster on Facebook, where it went viral. It has almost 70,000 shares to date.Proper BCS greatergood_ctg_abovevideoSource
