Indigenous Peer Mentoring: Help Seeking

There are a wide range of clips to choose from that address a variety of youth issues such as: dating violence, bullying, substance use, suicide and teen pregnancy. It is important to review clips in advance of showing them to the students. Use your judgement to select the most appropriate scenes you feel best relate to the issues students in your school are faced with. The peer mentoring manual identifies when it would be an appropriate time to show a clip.
