Mental Wellness Presentations for Grades 6-8
On Thursday, March 11, our students in Grades 6-8 enjoyed listening to Mike Stroh, the founder of “Starts With Me” speak about mental health and how each of us has the innate capacity for well-being. To embody well-being, we must practise taking care of our mind, body and spirit regularly.
The goal of building emotional well-being is not to stop difficult thoughts and feelings, make them go away, or only allow good ones. Rather, it is to help develop the ability to notice when they arise within, and how you can manage or cope when they present themselves.
