Welcome to the Warrior Within Curriculum Site!
During the 2016-2017 academic year, a group of eight students from three high schools in Toronto came together to develop Grade 9 (can be used in other grades too) curriculum content on mental health and illness as part of the Warrior Within project. The overarching goal was to create curriculum that resonates with the lived experiences of youth, and is comprehensive in its exploration of the myriad facets of mental health. Over the course of several months, the team developed five lesson plans (with a suggested sixth) that span topics from the physiology of a panic attack, to the science of mental health, to how to support a friend in need. Each lesson is multimedia and includes detailed teacher instructions.
