MY Healthy Futures: Nicotine Self-Paced Asynchronous Course for Students

The Los Angeles County Office of Education’s Tobacco-Use Prevention Education Unit Presents Stanford REACH Lab's MY Healthy Futures asynchronous self-paced course for students. The MY Healthy Futures - Nicotine Version is an Alternative-to-Suspension (ATS) curriculum geared for students who have been caught using nicotine products and/or for any student who is interested in trying to reduce or quit nicotine use.

MY Healthy Futures uses principles of motivational interviewing and cognitive-behavioral therapy, and touches on all of the salient issues involved in students’ use of nicotine products.

MY Healthy Futures incorporates a restorative practice and trauma-informed lens.

MY Healthy Futures is a self-paced course to be completed by the student in 40-60 minutes. This curriculum uses Canva slides with a video game design and audio (video game sounds and music).
