Stress Reduction Tools for High School Students With Anxiety

My students need resources to help with stress management. These tools will help teach techniques to effectively reduce their anxiety and anger.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students seem to be more stressed than ever before. Students at my school come from diverse backgrounds. Many come from low-income homes with less availability to connect to needed resources.

We are located in a suburban area in Centeal Delaware.

Many of our students lack the access to mental health counseling. Our school is constantly working to connect our students with mental health counseling, if needed. Additional resources and support are needed from their school counselors. My goal is to teach these stressed out and anxious teens some methods to calm themselves down so that they can focus and find academkc success!

My Project

Many students in our school struggle from anxiety, depression and other mental health concerns. On a daily basis, these students have so many worries on their mind that negatively affect their focus in their classes. Giving these tools to help students learn to identify and cope with stress will allow them to perform better academically as well as behaviorally.

Many of our students tend to have anger outbursts when they become very overwhelmed.

These stress balls would allow them to focus on releasing some of their tension in a productive way, rather than lashing out. The additional materials would be used to teach students techniques to identify and reduce their stress.

Thank you for your time in considering my project!
