Stress Less:  Life Hacks For School Success

Teenagers are experiencing stress at higher levels for many different reasons: school, friendships, family relationships, extracurricular activities. This 1-hour presentation seeks to teach students how to identify causes of stress, develop stress management techniques, and learn mindfulness practice. Mindfulness not only reduces stress and anxiety in individuals but leads to better school performance and overall well-being. By addressing this community need, NAMI Metro Suburban hopes to teach students how to reduce stress and practice good mental health behaviors.
