★★★★★ This is TPT's #1 best-selling "Mental Health Unit" for Teens! This unit includes engaging lessons based on the 5 dimensions of health.

Why are the five dimensions of Health important? Because they shape who we are as a person and affect the way we think and make decisions.

WOW! That’s powerful, especially for teens!


Do you want the teens you work with to:

-Maintain healthy, supportive relationships with family, friends and peers? (Social Health)

-Manage their feelings and behaviors, cope effectively with stress, and adapt to change? (Emotional Health)

-Have an inner peace and contentment with who they are and their current situation? (Spiritual Health)

-Develop skills and knowledge to be used later in life, while stimulating creativity and improving decision-making ability? (Mental Health)

-Participate in physical activity, one of the most effective ways to improve and maintain health? (Physical Health)

Then this uniquely all-encompassing unit is for you!


-This 4-week "Mental Health and Wellness Unit" uses a fun, interactive and reflective approach in presenting these relevant teen topics.
