Emotional check in for ages 11+

This chart encourages young people to think about the coping skills they have been using, and if these have been positive or negative in helping them to deal with, manage or process their emotions.

Emotional Checkin

Recognising the coping skills they have been using will help young people to identify ways in which they can more effectively support their mental health and wellbeing. This will help them to become more independent and resilient in the long term.
