Youth Education

There are three lessons to choose from. While it is best practice to teach all three lessons, you can choose to teach only one or two. Each of the lessons has corresponding slide deck with speak notes and activities that pair with the topic.

Lesson 1: We All Have Mental Health

This lesson will focus on identifying what is mental health and that taking care of our mental health is as important as taking care of our physical health.

Lesson 2: Everyday vs. Overwhelming Feelings

This lesson will help kids understand the difference between everyday feelings and overwhelming feelings. The students will watch an age-appropriate video and do an activity related to everyday/overwhelming feelings. Secondly, students will explore coping strategies they can use.

Lesson 3: Help-Seeking Behaviors

This lesson will focus on help seeking behaviors and identifying who is a trusted adult.
