Students have unique stress and risk factors related to the demands of school; balancing academic, social, and employment responsibilities while trying to grow in the understanding of being independent members of society. Statistics show that 75 percent of mental illnesses develop before age 25, making schools the ideal locations for early identification. However, the number one reason students say they do not use mental health resources is lack of knowledge that those resources even exist. You will walk out of this session with hands-on activity kits (we have 8 so far…working on a few more!) your students can engage in to learn more about Mental Health! Some of the activities are built around identifying signs and symptoms of mental health, identifying mental health resources and self-help strategies, making decisions around when and how to help others and what to say, etc.
