Description

★★★★★ This stress unit will make these difficult topics easy to teach and will be impacting for your students…They'll love the sleep project and all the surveys, and the depression and suicide lessons will give them understanding and hope.

Through discussions, reflective surveys, hands-on activities, and INTERACTIVE GOOGLE SLIDES, this engaging unit helps students combine their values and motivations, recognize the causes of depression, understand how to get help and healing for depression, know the causes of suicide and how to help someone considering it; and finally, see 5 ways THEY CAN EMPOWER THEMSELVES to overcome stress, to do something good for others, and become more confident and motivated for their own future.

I also just finished an amazing update. There are now all-new photos on the Stress PowerPoint and several worksheets; AND besides the High School Stress lessons, I added the complete Stress Units from each of the 3 Middle/Jr. High School grade levels! (See specifics activities listed below.)

★This resource is taken directly from my Full Semester/Year High School Health Curriculum, and my Middle/Junior High School Health Curriculum, which are both #1 Best-Selling Health Curriculums on TPT!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

★Unfortunately teen depression is often seen as a normal teenage "phase" of life and consequently, it's not diagnosed or treated.

This unit uses a "Depression Survey," PowerPoint slides, and activities to help your students understand and possibly recognize the symptoms of stress and depression.

Students will learn that Clinical Depression is treatable and that help is available!!

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

★The unit stresses that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem and it leaves devastation for loved ones in its wake, and what to do if a friend is talking about suicide, and more.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
