Meet & Greet the Artists: Students from the Grossmont College Art Department
Students at Grossmont College created individual works with the theme of Mental Health that explore the impact of stress, the use of mental health strategies, and healing for stress management which can decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and chronic stress helping to regulate the nervous system. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how we think, feel, and act. It also helps determine how we handle stress, relate to others, and make choices. Many factors contribute to mental health problems, including biological factors, life experiences, such as trauma or abuse, and family history of mental health problems.
Positive mental health wellness allows people to realize their full potential, cope with stress, work productively, and make meaningful contributions to their communities. Things we can all do to maintain our positive mental health include getting professional help when we need it, connecting with and helping others, staying positive, being physically active, getting enough sleep, and developing coping skills.
The students at Grossmont College have explored these ideas and concepts through works of drawing, painting, ceramics, digital art, printmaking, photography, and sculpture.
