Objectives for Mental Health Unit

These are my current Objectives for my Mental Health Unit. I want to focus on self-knowledge and self-care in this unit.

Students will be able to:
• Assess their own level of overall health and identify ways to improve it
• Have an understanding of their own self-esteem, how to improve it and take steps to improve it
• Set realistic immediate, intermediate and long-term goals for themselves and take steps to realize those goals
• Communicate in an assertive and healthy manner
• Resolve conflicts in a non-violent manner
• Describe the stages of grief
• Describe the symptoms of depression, as well as where and how to get help for oneself or a friend
• Practice methods of stress management
