Product Description
How can we get a true understanding of what it's like to live with a mental illness? In this resource students will go deeper and beyond textbooks and the DSM in order to try to understand the human element behind the disorders. Structured as a lit circle project, students will read young-adult literature that features a main character suffering from one of many mental illnesses. Throughout their reading and discussions, students will think critically and make conclusions based on the text.

The project culminates in a presentation which answers essential questions about the complexities of symptoms, treatments, quality of life, humanity, and empathy. This is a great way to get students passionate about advocating for mental health awareness while decreasing stigma and increasing empathy. Recommended scoring guide for presentations is included. Resource includes lesson plan with learning targets, printable handouts with graphic organizers, and examples.
