Students learn to “chill” at River Falls High School

River Falls High School[River Falls Journal, Sept. 21, 2018] River Falls High School is one of nine area high schools chosen to be part of Allina’s new “Change to Chill” school partnership.

The Change to Chill partnership is meant to support school-wide efforts to create a culture of mental wellbeing for students and staff.

“When teens have the resources and support to stress less, they are more resilient and able to live fuller and happier lives,” said Susan Nygaard, manager of Allina Health’s Community Health Improvement. “Change to Chill works as a preventive measure to equip teens with tools and resources to better manage stress and anxiety.”

“RFHS was lucky to receive a grant for ‘Change To Chill’ which partners with Allina Health,” said River Falls Renaissance Academy Director Taryl Graetz. “In our Youth Risk Behavior Survey students participated in last spring, students indicated some concern about increased anxiety and stress.”
