Announcing PANDA’S new printable Mental Health tip sheet for teachers and students
Many people are aware of methods to stay physically healthy, but few are educated about what it means to stay mentally healthy. Mental and physical health are closely intertwined, and both should be priorities in our lives.
PANDA’s new Mental Health tip sheet provides 10 methods to stay mentally well and is available on our website. You can find the link to the tip sheet on our homepage pandamn.org as well as in the Mental Health category under Resources. Our Mental Health tip sheet is available in 10 different languages: English, French, Hmong, Karen, Oromo, Russian, Somali, Spanish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. Check it out and print them for yourself and your students!
More information at upcoming Fall Regionals!
To learn more about how to implement the mental health tip sheet attend our workshop at the Fall Regional in Mankato or Walker. Wendy Sweeney and Andrea Echelberger will be co-presenting about methods to utilize PANDA’S new Mental Health tip sheet with concrete examples for use in the classroom.
