As we started the goal to provide mental health support to the students, the Guidance Center in coordination with Empath organized a wellness webinar entitled “𝐌𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐥 𝐇𝐞𝐚𝐥𝐭𝐡 𝟏𝟎𝟏 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐏𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐜𝐚𝐥 𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐂𝐚𝐫𝐞”, designed for Grade 5 and 6 students which was held last November 10, 2022 via Zoom. This activity aimed to help the students understand the basics of mental health, and develop practical self-care habits that can be used in different aspects of life.
The invited speaker was Ms. Gracie Orden, RGC, LPT. She presented to the students about what mental health is, why it’s important, and how to take care of oneself. She also facilitated the students to identify the truths and misconceptions about mental health. The program was moderated by Ms. Adrina Cartagena.
