One of our favorite ways to help children and teens is to work in schools and with teachers. We had the pleasure of working with a Middle School where we held all day workshops for the students. In these workshops, we focused on talking about coping skills, self-confidence, and did an activity with the kids.
The students told us that they enjoyed getting to share their creations and explain what it meant to them. Mr. Patrick, the school’s counselor, also let us know that he thought it was great that we not only were able to give the students information regarding mental health, but also did it in such an engaging manner. He said he would very much like to have us back in the next school year, and we are very much looking forward to it.
