Just Being Me

The COPMI national initiative & MindMatters, Australia, 2009

Produced in conjunction with MindMatters, this book is a package of ideas for middle schools teachers using ‘Helicopter Man’ and/or ‘Lockie Leonard – Legend’ as class texts and who are interested in the following potential outcomes for students:

  • increasing students’ understanding of mental illness and its potential affect on families
  • reducing the stigma associated with mental illness
  • increasing students’ help seeking behaviours.

Ideas provided are mainly for use in English classes with associated links for health and physical education, society and environment, maths, arts, science and design and technology.
