Holistic Health & Emotional Literacy

About the Topic
Join us as we discuss the importance of Holistic Health and Emotional Literacy in prevention education. Donna will share an overview of “Whole Person Health” including a short demonstration that we use with youth in the classroom. She will also discuss the current state of our youth regarding mental health and emotional literacy and share an activity that you can use in the classroom (or at home) to get your kids talking and to better understand what emotional literacy is and why it is important.
