Youth Mental Health & Cannabis
interactive lesson plans
Interested in helping young people to understand the risks associated with cannabis use? If the answer is yes, these lessons are for you.
In spite of high levels of cannabis use in youth, research suggests that many young people are unaware of the health and mental health risks associated with cannabis use. With input from experts in addiction, mental health and cannabis research, teacher Andrew Bates has developed two lesson plans exploring cannabis use, dependence and mental health. Lessons involve interactive debates, videos and powerpoint presentations.
