Component Evaluation: Imagining Alternatives
Time: 30 minutes
Mode: In class; Online
Our current mental health system does not support a variety of care and wellbeing needs. Often people are only encouraged to seek out talk therapy. With this in mind, and with the artists call to diversifying how we practice care and wellbeing, either facilitate a discussion or ask students to create a visual representation of an imagined alternative.
Provide your students will the following questions to guide the activity:
- What does your dream mental health care look like? How is it supported?
- How does your dream approach to mental health apply an intersectional lens?
