So far, teachers at about 50 school districts and private schools across Washington have been trained to deliver the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource at their school, to grades 9-12. Students’ pre- and post-test scores have shown a 32% increase in mental health knowledge and 68% improved responses to questions related to stigmatizing attitudes. Imagine the impact this will have, as more and more of our youth learn about mental health and when to seek help for themselves or others, with the barrier of stigma reduced!
Bringing the Mental Health & High School Curriculum Resource to Washington students is a partnership between WA Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction’s Project AWARE, the Jordan Binion Project, and CHI Franciscan Health’s Prevent-Avert-Respond (PAR) Initiative.
