In October 2021, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP) joined together to declare a National State of Emergency in children’s mental health. In December 2021, the U.S. Surgeon General issued an advisory to address the youth mental health crisis that has been further exposed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Cook Center for Human Connection in partnership with Wonder Media has produced “My Life is Worth Living” an animated series about youth mental health. The series is designed by a team of doctors, social workers, and suicide experts to model research-backed suicide prevention strategies. Issues of depression, abuse, homelessness, bullying, substance abuse, trauma, and gender identity are explored through the stories of five relatable teens. Each character finds a path to help, healing, and hope and provides viewers with inspiration to do the same.

Join the Cook Center for Human Connection in this session to learn about the engaging and interactive school-based curriculum that is available to support and expand on the animated web series. The films and the curriculum are available at no cost in order to be accessible to all who need it.

Professional Credit

Available for one-hour of PD credit. A certificate of completion will be available for download at the end of your session that you can submit for your school's or district's approval.

Share My Lesson is now a New York State Education Department-approved provider for Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE) requirements and an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) approved Professional Development provider.
