For adults and older students
Ever wonder what folks ‘down under’ are thinking about?~~This link to the Women’s and Children’s Health Network on the Government of South Australia’s web site shows us they’re thinking about RESILIENCE just like us!
Remember that the most critical aspect of resiliency is having a trusted, caring adult you can confide in.~~You might consider developing a relationship with someone who can be that trusted confidant to you.~~And you may wish to be that trusted person to someone else.~~You can make the difference that keeps someone alive.
Wishing you all a safe, healthy, and happy summer!
