    I loved this mini-lesson as an introduction to mental health stigma. I think that it’s a powerful way for students to take a different perspective on a topic that they may have previously contemplated. This would be a great mini-lesson to introduce during a lesson about stereotypes, prejudices, and biases. I would perhaps start by having students come up with phrases describing people with schizophrenia or other misunderstood mental illnesses. Participating in the mini-lesson laid out in this lesson plan would most likely change their perspective on people with mental illnesses and provide students with a tangible example of how biases and stereotypes do not always represent reality.
