Clay County High School students have been learning about the Eight Dimensions of Wellness and how to approach community resource organizations to find information to support their own well-being. On Friday, December 2, they held a Wellness Conference for the entire student body. More than 30 community resource organizations participated by offering a variety of workshops or setting up a vendor table.
The students visited vendor tables and practiced talking with the people to gather information. Each student attended three scheduled workshops to learn about different hobbies and recreational opportunities that are available in their community. The goal of the conference was to engage students in prosocial activities that benefit their mental health.
Kelly Duffield, Clay County AWARE Coordinator, Leslie Osburn, Clay County School Counselor and their team did a wonderful job of putting this activity together for their school. The show of support from the organizations and volunteers that attended was overwhelming. Even Sammie, the therapy dog, was there to support the students.
