Yes I Can: Mental Health Guide for Adult Literacy Facilitators
Date posted: May 9, 2017
Yes I Can: A Mental Health Guide for Adult Literacy Facilitators is an extensive new resource from Project READ Literacy Network. This guide for adult education facilitators provides information and strategies for supporting adult learners living with mental health conditions or disorders.
In addition to general information on mental health challenges, it presents information on specific conditions and disorders, and strategies for supporting learners living with these issues – what you might notice, what you can do, and learning strategies. And, there are tip sheets for learners. For instructors or tutors working with adult students with mental health challenges, this is an excellent resource.
