The quizzes in class are played on Kahoot to increase engagement and learner fun. Please review with your learner the info-sheet in the classroom area after enrolling so they can participate.
We will discuss brain health, prevention of drug and alcohol use and other addictions, prevention of brain injury, how to retain mental (=brain) health from an evidence-based perspective as well as when and how to ask for help if necessary. 
This is education, not counseling. If your child has a mental or neurodevelopmental illness, this class can inform them about the backgrounds and help them to accept a special diet and supplements as well as to adopt healthy behaviors, but it does not provide individual counseling or therapy. Please always use and follow the advice of your child's healthcare provider!
This class is adapted (under license) from Dr. Daniel Amen's course "BrainThrive by 25". The original course has been taught in 100's of schools and been proven to reduce the likelihood of participants using drugs/alcohol/marijuana, and to improve student's own physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. Dr. Daniel Amen (who is a science-based double board-certified US-based psychiatrist, NYT bestselling author and appeared on public TV, Dr. Phil, Dr. OZ, Oprah etc) also authored many excellent books, other courses and many video programs on how to change your brain to change your life, how to get better grades, and how to help Anxiety, Depression, ADD, and ADHD. 
we will use materials by my mentor and teacher Dr. Daniel Amen (Brain Thrive by 25)( under license)
