Mental Health Stigma: Challenging it together!


A discussion booklet for the classroom (Grades 5 to 12)

The Student Voice booklets are a resource to support discussions about complex societal issues using the voice of students. Mental illness affects people of all ages, all education and income levels, and traverses all cultures. The stigma of mental illness continues and media often promote myths and misconceptions. This resource booklet was developed to support teachers to raise awareness and reduce stigma around mental illness, and, in turn, decrease the barriers that can prevent youth and family members from seeking help.
