For Today…

  • We are finishing up with this section of the first unit. We are going to touch on suicide today as at times stressors become too much for some people and this option is seen as the only option. Suicide is a leading cause of death among teens and many cite mental health issues as the cause. We will explore Mental Health Disorders in more detail in the next section of this unit.

A spiritual life

  • This can be a connection to:

    • A supreme being

    • Nature

  • Ways that organized religions can help:

    • Guidance

    • Sense of belonging to part of a community

    • The act of helping others

    • Life has meaning


Getting professional help

Getting Professional Help

  • At times a person can feel overwhelmed by stress. If it reaches a point where you feel unable to cope with the stress in your life, you should get help from a professional

  • This does not always have to be a psychologist; it could be a school counsellor or religious leader, etc.


For today

  • Many stressors cannot be handled alone

    • Physical, emotional or sexual abuse

  • It is important to remember that there are always things that can be done to improve the situation no matter how bad it may appear.


Managing your time by setting goals and prioritizing

Managing your time by setting goals and prioritizing

  • A common stressor that almost everyone faces is the feeling that you do not have enough time to do everything you need and want to do,

  • The key to using time wisely is to set goals and prioritize them.


Managing your time by setting goals and prioritizing1

Managing your time by setting goals and prioritizing

The following steps will help to reduce the stress of “not having enough time.”

  • List your goals for today

  • Prioritise you goals

    • Beside each write either a “A”, a “B” or a “C”.

      • The goals you label “A” are ones that must get done that day.

      • The ones labelled “B” are those you would like to get done.

      • The goals labelled “C” are not as important and may have to wait until later.

Managing your time by setting goals and prioritizing

3. During the day, do what is necessary to reach your “A” goals first, then your “B” goals. If you have some time left, you can attend to your “C” goals.

  • This method can be used for goals to complete in just a few hours, weeks, months, or even a year.


The following also help with managing time

The following also help with managing time

  • Learn how to say NO. Do not take on task that you may have no time to complete

  • Work on one task at a time. Do not go back and forth between tasks. Time is wasted reorienting yourself.

  • Ask for help from others when you are pressured for time.
