I.C. Hope - Don't Duck Mental Health

I.C. Hope® Don't Duck Mental Health® program is a free public awareness and education program that teaches basic coping skills for mental health and aims to eliminate mental health stigma at a young age. Geared towards elementary school children, the program features I.C. Hope®, the Ambassador for Mental Health and Wellness. This friendly duck wears a bandage on his head to symbolize that mental illness is real and treatable and a life preserver around his neck to symbolize that every life is worth saving.

The program features story time,discussion, crafts and the oh so popular "Down with the Duck" song and dance. By the end of the program, students should be able to identify new coping skills for stress, bullying, grief, anger and other mental health-related topics. Each session is about an hour long and features one mental health topic. Number of sessions given per group can be adjusted per request.
