STOP Stigma by Cornwall Healthy Schools
Resources to explore and challenge stigma towards those with mental health problems.
STOP Stigma is an excellent resource which will enable teachers to explore and challenge the stigma that may be attached to people experiencing the most common mental health problems. Targeting Year 9 but flexible enough to be used with younger or older pupils, it is relevant and realistic in terms of its aims, clear learning objectives, demands on teachers’ own experience and curriculum time. The material encourages an interactive approach including group work and enabling pupils to undertake their own investigations. Lessons 'start from where the pupils are’ offering opportunities for critical self-reflection to aid assessment as pupils' individual learning progresses.
The material also contains a wealth of factual information to support both teachers and pupils as they undertake the work. The resource offers a clear process to enable teachers and pupils to collaborate in evaluating the impact of the programme.
