The Positive Minds program (PMP) is a school-based mental health education program that provides students the knowledge, tools, and resources to bring about positive change in their lives. PMP is facilitated by licensed mental health professionals or candidates for licensure, to empower students with the confidence needed to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
The Positive Minds Program sets itself apart from other school-based educational programs through the use of Recreational Therapy techniques. Facilitators will engage students in learning by using interactive games, crafts, and team building exercises. NO POWERPOINTS!
To equip students with a strong understanding of positive mental health, provide them with a tool box of new skills to aid them in living a healthy lifestyle, and decrease the stigma surrounding mental health in our community.
Statistics gathered from the National Alliance on Mental Illness estimate one-in-five youth worldwide will experience mental illness before age of 25. This makes childhood and adolescence a crucial time for the promotion, prevention, and intervention of mental health.
