HeadStrong: The creative way to teach, talk and think about mood disorders


Janice Atkin was contracted by The Black Dog Institute to develop the HeadStrong teaching resource: the creative way of thinking, talking and teaching about mood disorders.

This resource is aligned to the Health & Physical Education state and territory curriculums and the draft Australian Curriculum for Years 9-10.

HeadStrong includes 5 modules that are split into a series of ready to use classroom activities and teacher development notes. Each module links directly to curriculum outcomes, and is supported by a series of engaging class room presentations by bestselling author and illustrator, Matthew Johnstone.
