After Benjamin Banneker High School students surveyed their classmates to learn about the state of their mental health and learned that most students were anxious and stressed at school and in their personal lives, they wanted to prioritize mental health with their Eco-Audit Grant. The students used their grant to create portable Social/Emotional Learning (SEL) carts that can be moved from floor to floor of the school making them more accessible. Items such as mindfulness cards, games, drawing materials, and stress balls will be available to all students to help offset stress and anxiety in the new school year.
