Next Steps for the Mental Health (Literacy) Library
The site you now see is about to change. A new site is being professionally developed so that MentalHealthInstruction.org can be more than just Mental Health Literacy.
The New Look
We are taking this site to new levels with easier comparison tools, user friendly navigation and greater capacity for updates and data collection to aid in the study of efficacy.
The new site will house not just one, but four separate Mental Health Educational categories. In addition to Mental Health Literacy, there will be room for Social Emotional Learning programs, Suicide Prevention and Substance Use programs - all geared toward school-based delivery to students as curricula or event programs.
While we've come so far, this has only been the beginning of our vision at Chad's Legacy Project. Once the new site is built, much more work will be done to search and vet programs to be listed on this site to complete the library. Then we will need to ensure sustainability by staffing an administrator for site upkeep, data collection and further growth of library inventory. That will take new funding. If you can help, please let us know!
