About this session
Life Hacks for the Teenage Brain is a 45-minute presentation provided by Suffolk Mind to introduce mental health and Emotional Needs.
The presentation can be delivered to class groups, as a whole school/year assembly, or as a session hosted by schools for parents and carers.
We will take teenagers and pre-teens through skills that they can use to manage their own mental health to bring them back towards wellbeing, by meeting their emotional needs in healthy ways.
In the talk we discuss sleep, hormones and the impact that growth can have on feelings and emotions.
This talk will support young people to understand how the brain reacts differently based on differing experiences. We focus on the brain and the science behind how we can react rather than respond, and what we can do to change that.
We teach skills and life hacks to support managing emotions, overcoming panic and stress and dealing with overwhelming experiences.
