Brief reflection
Our focus was on mental health, especially teenagers as the issue is growing vastly. We worked with Animals Asia to bring in therapy dogs to different classes to relieve stress. Overall, the students and teachers we visited had extremely positive responses, and we also had many requests from other classes that we could not fulfill due to how difficult it was to just get three visits.
