Hopeful Minds Curriculum Is Now Available for Free
Hopeful Minds is a new curriculum project developed by iFred, the International Foundation for Research and Education on Depression. The curriculum is based on research that suggests hope is a teachable skill. The curriculum aims to equip students, educators, and parents with the tools they need to find and maintain hope even during the most trying of times. All of the Hopeful Minds materials are free, so please share with anyone interested in learning these critical skills necessary for all globally. The hope curriculum can be used at home, in the classroom, in church, in after-school programs, or wherever you interact with youth. Hopeful Minds meets the CDC National Health Education Standards (NHES), state-specific Social and Emotional Learning Standards (SEL), and anti-bullying guidelines. Hopeful Minds is trauma-informed and aims to reduce the impact of inequality and discrimination. Other countries may find these guidelines incredibly useful when viewing/teaching the curriculum, as they can be universally applied. Register, here.
