Mental Wellness: Don't Flip Your Lid (Secondary)
Life can be stressful—you may feel stressed about performance at school, traumatic events (such as a pandemic, natural disaster, or act of violence), or a life change. Everyone feels stress from time to time. What flips your lid and triggers that fight, flight, or freeze response? What about your child’s lid? This program explores coping with stress, anxiety, and learning to self-regulate our responses.
