Digital Story Telling Toolkit

This is the Digital Storytelling toolkit

The Digital Storytelling Toolkit has been designed to help young people have better conversations around mental health.

Thinking nobody else feels the same way you do can be a suffocating experience.

Using insights we gained during a series of six storytelling workshops with students ages 13-16, we have developed this resource to help you talk about mental health and wellbeing in smaller groups.

When done mindfully, discussing the provided materials and prompts in groups can help you improve your sense of connection and belonging, as well as your self-awareness.
