In this module designed specifically for use with students, the challenges of looking after friends are explored through facilitated classroom activities. Students consider some of the warning signs that a friend may be in trouble and understand the limitations of the help they can provide. Two videos, created for a student audience, are used within the activities to encourage young people to think about how they can look after friends.
During the activities, students learn how to have conversations with friends, how to be a good listener and how to follow up with support from trusted adults or mental health professionals, if needed. The module resources include a student handout and a teacher guide to provide structure and guidance for running the activities in the classroom.
