Tips for the students’ well-being.

As Mental Health Awareness Day was yesterday (11-10-15). I want to show some well-being tips that I wrote myself for my students. I made this handout for a school that I was in for my 4th year Teaching Practice. During health week in their school my handout given out to all of the pupils. I also gave a talk to my classes about these issues. It went down really well with all of my pupils. I got great feedback and the pupils were really grateful.
