ChatterHigh's Mental Health Modules are intended to encourage students to recognize symptoms not only in themselves but also in others. The research and learn approach encourages students to read about symptoms, resulting in a greater understanding of them. Let's have a look at how these modules helped students recognize symptoms.
The modules teach students about different stigmas linked with mental health disorders and how to deal with them. ChatterHigh has even collaborated with Stigma-Free Society to offer a Mindful Module that covers issues of stigma and resources for students to address such stigmas. The goal is to assist students in understanding they are not alone and to educate them on common misconceptions regarding mental health problems. Here are some examples of how ChatterHigh has succeeded in meeting this goal.
Through exploring the answers to the quiz questions, the Mental Health Modules connect students to various resources, tools, and supports. The modules provide students with a fun, guided tour of reputable mental health organizations, as well as all of the services and resources they provide. The following are quotes from students who used the modules to explore useful resources for themselves.
Through these modules, ChatterHigh aims to empower students to seek support. Students may experience stigma and be deterred from seeking help because they are embarrassed. We at ChatterHigh think that a mental illness is no different from a physical illness and that one should not be ashamed or scared to seek treatment for it. The engaging modules raise awareness of various stigmas and how students might combat such stigmas. Check out how the Mental Health Modules have successfully encouraged students at New Westminster Secondary School.
We've all been in circumstances when we want to support our loved ones but aren't sure what we can do. The Mental Health Modules not only assist students in improving their own mental health, but they also give them tools that they may utilize to support their loved ones. Here's how ChatterHigh assisted students in supporting their loved ones.
To improve awareness regarding mental health, we need to encourage self-awareness among students. ChatterHigh's Mental Health Modules assist students in identifying and reflecting on their own ideas and behaviors, while also connecting them to resources and tools to help them make a healthy mental shift.
