Youth Revolution members from Vincent Massey High School received a Laughter Yoga session by Jocelyn Dowden from the Reiki Place.
The purpose of the workshop was to educate the Y-Rev members to other ways that could increase good mental health, in order to reduce the use of drugs and alcohol among children and youth.
Students from Massey’s Leadership class joined the Youth Revolution members during the workshop, as well.
“At the beginning, it was hard for some of the students to open up and let go,” said Micayla Krahn, a Grade 12 Youth Revolution Member from Massey.
“After 20 minutes, everybody was right into it and we sure laughed a lot.”
