iMinds Learning Resources

iMinds is a collection of health education resources that address multiple areas of BC's new curriculum.  CARBC will be adding new lesson ideas to build on the collection. 

The resources seek to maximize young people's drug literacy—the knowledge and skills they need to survive and thrive in a world where caffeine, tobacco, alcohol and other drug use is common. Building health literacy (including drug literacy) is one part of a comprehensive school health approach to addressing substance use (along with other behavioural health matters relevant to youth).

The grades 4-8 and 10 units of iMinds are also available in French.
