Mental health is necessary for all individuals. It is especially necessary for students, who may not know the impact of their words or actions, who may not know how to be a true friend, who may not know how to ask for appropriate help. Use this powerful story to illustrate how one day, one action can improve another person's life.
Tip: Continue with a meaningful classroom discussion and lesson plan on empathy, suicide risks and signs, and friendship. Finish with school resources for helping students who are struggling with anxiety, depression, or other mental health needs.
