Back to class
Since we had finished all our mental health lessons and done a little bit of film watching and debating, I decided to carry the game to class for the students to familiarize ourselves with it and events that took part in our history. Mental health is more about wellness and resilience and less about illnesses and their causes and this class drove that point home. It was the best class ever and Casey sent one of her team members to come through and the students were really excited to learn how the game was made and it was also an opportunity for them to see that they can accomplish anything as long as they put their mind to it. Really soon we are going to have a game challenge between Casey and her crew and me and the students...cant wait to teach them a few things.
Special shout out to Casey and her team for donating one of the board games to MMMF, you can support her work by getting the games here and see more pictures from the class here
