Create a Mental Health Resource
Use media to give students the opportunity to explore their own mental health and learn about resources and ways to handle stress. Make sure you’ve visited the Getting Started page to familiarize yourself and your students with video and recording practices. Once your project is complete, share it with us and we’ll feature it on the Michigan Learning Channel YouTube channel! Just send us an email at MLC@dptv.org.
Get inspired by other student work and professional media.
