How we connect: community
Place2Be Ambassador, podcaster and journalist, Josh Smith, visited two secondary schools to ask students about the different ways they connect, and how connections can impact their mental health and wellbeing.
In this video, young people talk to Josh about those in the community that might feel a lack of connection with others, and how we can support them.
After watching this video, you may want to have a discussion as a class about those who may feel a lack of connection. Here are a few suggested discussion points and questions:
- Who in our school community might feel a lack of connection with others?
- What happens when we feel disconnected from others?
- How can extroverts leave enough room in social spaces for introverts to have their voice heard?
