“I knew something wasn’t right, but I didn’t have the words for it. This was the best class — with really important information that we all need!”

8th Grade Student

“I had been searching for a research based mental health curriculum for our students. I was disappointed with the very few options that I found. The only one I considered before MHC was cost prohibitive and not nearly as comprehensive. When I learned about the MHC curriculum, it checked all the boxes. My teachers could hit the ground running with everything that was given to us AND we were also given more than enough materials and activities to expand on the units in the future. The best part – our students loved it!”
