1. Ask the group to discuss how the experiences shared by the Into the Outside Youth Collective might affect their emotional health and wellbeing.
2. Create two lists – one of some of the emotions explored, and a second that lists what the youth collective have experienced.
3. Look at the lists you have created. How do the two lists relate to each other? Together discuss the five steps to wellbeing and how these can help develop resilience in times of emotional stress.
