James just moved from B.C. to a school in Ontario. As a grade 8 student, moving half way through a school year, he's having a hard time adjusting to all this change. He feels the reasons for his move are private, and he's not comfortable discussing them with anyone, but people keep asking about it. He feels like after the first two weeks in his new class he doesn't want to be friends with anyone. His teacher, along with the work being assigned, seems so different from what he was doing out west. James is becoming very stressed out. Just recently, he verbally abused his bus driver on his way to school and was given a suspension.
I think the issues James is having with his mental health is stress. He is stressed out about his schoolwork and his friends. Some ways I suggest that he tries is to use a stress ball or talk to someone he trusts about what is going on.
What subject gives you the most stress/trouble, why?
