Session 5: Our Support Network
Who are the people that are important to you? Create a mind map, with you in the middle, and the important people around you.
(You might include family, friends, teachers, people who help you and others)
I wonder why these people are important to you? Underneath each name, write a few words to state why they are important, for example you might Mum: always listens to me and loves me no matter what
