'Support Network' / '5 Fingers of Support' Student Handout to support your students to develop help-seeking skills.
1. Invite students to use the handout to identify 4 adults that they would talk to if they had gut feelings of being unsafe or were struggling with their mental health (examples of adult supports include aunts/ uncles, older cousins, tutor, librarian, coach, friend's parents, older family member).
2. Explain how pets and friends should not be a finger of support even though they can be great listeners and non judgemental. Explain that with help seeking for mental health or risk they need to also share with an adult in their support network given that adults have the capacity to problem solve & action change.
3. Explain how it is normal to have to speak to more than one adult when help seeking, and that they will need to keep telling a person on their Support Network until their issues are resolved.
