Graphic Novels & Mental Health

As educators, it has never been more important to teach about mental illness, mental health, and wellness strategies. What better way to do this than by using a graphic novel? Students are so intrigued by visual media, and it's a great way to get them reading and interested. Even if you don't know much about comics, this workshop will give you the basics to teach using graphic novels, topics to explore, and recommended comics to use in high school classrooms.

Brittany also enjoys travelling, and moved from Ontario to settle into her teaching career on the West Coast. Brittany's favourite way to care for her mental health is to spend time in nature with her partner and their cat! She's looking forward to meeting more teachers and learning together!
