Hallmarks of Good Mental Health

DVD, 2008, 16 minutes, CC, HRM, Grades 7 – 12

This program helps viewers recognize the six key qualities that define good mental health in adolescence having satisfying relationships, being happy with one’s academic achievements, maintaining clear and achievable goals, being capable of delaying immediate gratification, making good choices and resisting unhealthy peer pressure. Having a strong sense of self-esteem is especially highlighted: if you do not feel good about yourself, you are more likely to limit yourself and make bad choices. Each of the hallmarks is demonstrated by real teens in a variety of settings, including at school, at home and at play. Part of Curriculum in a Box: Mental Health.
