Student Resources – On Campus

Student Wellness Programs

The Student Wellness Programs were created to support the overall well being of the students at Cathedral Catholic High School. The Wellness Groups are student led but do have adult supervision and support. The Wellness Groups meet once a month and always welcome new members. Wellness Groups are not meant as counseling sessions rather they offer students an opportunity to meet with peers that are experiencing similar situations. Students have the opportunity during these gatherings to share individual stories, experiences, and garner strength and support from those also in attendance.

Student Wellness Programs — Aevidum

AEVIDUM meets on the third Thursday each month at lunch in De Sales Hall, room 103. Aevidum is a depression and suicide awareness and prevention initiative for high school students. The goals of the program include helping students understand that depression is a treatable illness, teaching students to know the warning signs of depression, and enabling students to use their gifts and talents to spread the Aevidum message of hope. Aevidum also encourages students to be advocates for other students in need. New members are always welcome to be part of this powerful initiative. Aevidum always reminds its members, and the student body, to “remember you are not alone and we’ve got your back!”

Student Wellness Programs — Families in Transition

Families In Transition (FIT) meets the second Wednesday of every month at lunch in De Sales Hall, room 103. FIT is for students who are experiencing stress or anxiety due to family transition, separation, divorce, or relationship challenges. Many students also attend the meetings due to relationship challenges that are caused by family mental/physical health issues and family substance abuse concerns. FIT is intended so that students do not feel like they must shoulder these types of burdens alone. Father Kelly and other adult facilitators join with student leaders to assist students in their time of need.

Student Wellness Programs — Sturdy Wings

Sturdy Wings meets the first Wednesday of each month at lunch in De Sales Hall, room 103. Sturdy Wings is for students who are experiencing a sense of anxiety or loss because of an illness or death of a family member or friend. The group reminds students that they are not alone during what can be a very difficult period. Father Kelly and other staff members assist the student lead wellness group through the spiritual and emotional journey of illness and loss.
