April CHAT QUESTIONS: #MentalHealth & #WellBeing
1. How do you assess your own well-being? (happiness/ wellness)
2. What is the relationship between mental health and physical health?
3. What are some strategies you use to manage stress/ reset your sense of well-being?
4. What can you do in your community to jump start the conversation about mental health?
5. What do you do to be proactive with your mental health?
6. What resources can you reach out to when dealing with poor mental health?
*The same questions will be used for the Slow Chat all month long. We recommend classes spend time answering the questions ahead of time so time during the chat can be spent liking tweets, retweeting, quoting tweets in reply, and collaborating with others.
