Mental Health Literacy Units of Instruction

Mental health literacy includes the knowledge, attitudes, and skills needed to develop and maintain positive mental health, identify mental health challenges in self and others, reduce stigma, and seek appropriate help. 

These skills-based units of instruction include lessons for elementary, middle, and high school students, and focus on developing the skills that students need to maintain mental health and well-being, plus recognize and support others who may be struggling.
