Can't talk, Write. Using writing to improve young people’s mental and emotional wellbeing. A toolkit for facilitators.
The toolkit has been developed to help you, as a facilitator, explore how writing can connect with our thoughts and feelings. There are 10 sessions – each with an accompanying activity – for you to try out with young people aged
11 to 18-years-old. Each session comes with a lesson plan, as well as ideas to help you adapt or expand the content. You don’t have to print the activity worksheets out – you can use a journal or notepad instead.
