High School Highlights
Health Class Focuses On Mental Health
Health students are currently focusing on the health skill of self-management. Self-management will coincide with our mental health unit. Health class and discussion around health in general often focuses on the negatives. We spend a lot of time talking about what NOT to do. The emphasis in this unit is how to maintain or enhance mental health through positive behaviors such as gratitude, mindfulness, laughter, strengthening relationships, exercise, and kindness toward others. I have created a unit that shows students many different strategies for enhancing mental health, all with a positive focus.
One behavior that we spent two days on, was a letter of gratitude. Students were asked to write a letter to someone that had a major impact on their life that they haven't expressed gratitude towards. Students wrote letters and were given the opportunity to make the phone call in class and read the letter to this person. We had 5 brave students call and read letters in front of their classmates. This was an emotional experience for all and a courageous act by these students. Other students were asked to read the letter to this person outside of school. Most students reported a positive experience that enhanced their happiness as well as the recipient of the gratitude letter. I believe we also strengthened a relationship through this letter.
