iMinds is a health education resource that seeks to maximize young people's drug literacy—the knowledge and skills they need to survive and thrive in a world where caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and other drug use is common. Building health literacy is one part of a comprehensive school health approach to addressing substance use (along with other behavioural health matters relevant to youth).
The easy-to-implement, 6-lesson modules have been designed to support BC Ministry of Education curricula but are adaptable to meet various educational needs. Available in both English and French, iMinds modules may be used in any Canadian classroom. Teacher feedback is welcome to inform our continuous development of the series.
