iMinds drug education

Funding body: BC Ministry of Health

Background: This project develops classroom learning resources to promote effective drug education. This focuses on maximizing young people's drug literacy—the knowledge and skills they need to survive and thrive in a world where caffeine, tobacco, alcohol, other drug use are common. The goal is to encourage students to both express and think critically about their current drug-related beliefs, attitudes and behaviours.

Drugs touch virtually every aspect of human life. The opportunities for education are equally diverse. iMinds consists of a wide range of learning ideas that can be easily adapted and used in various curricular areas such as Social Studies, English Language Arts, Science and other subjects and settings. Resources are available in both English and French.
