We believe that, in order to create sustainable change, we must not only enhance the health and wellbeing of our children and youth, but also improve the mental health literacy of parents, educators, physicians, and community leaders, alike. Mental wellbeing is built on a foundation of self-awareness, safe spaces, and supportive relationships. By taking an ecosystem-approach to mental health education, Beecuz helps nurture children's potential to thrive.
Each of our lessons are broken down into four parts, the first of which is designed for instructors to read in advance of the lesson. This background information is the reason why it's possible to teach our program without prior knowledge or training in positive education. A more detailed overview and samples of each part of a lesson are provided below.
The Hive is a comprehensive online platform, equipped with over 40 interdisciplinary lesson plans that walk you and your children through skills to improve your mental health and wellbeing. Grounded in positive psychology, our program is designed to enhance each of the established five facets of wellbeing: Positive emotions, engagement, relationships, meaning, and achievement (PERMA). Our lessons are organized into seven units and address a range of topics including emotional intelligence, mindset, resilience, grit and tenacity, mindfulness, mental health literacy, and more.

We know that teaching and learning about mental wellness requires more than a detailed set of instructions. That's why The Hive has some additional features to ensure our program is as efficient, effective, and accessible as possible.
We said our lessons were all inclusive and we meant it! Each lesson is accompanied by detailed presentations, handouts, and worksheets that you can download and use for the designated activity.
It's challenging to know how to answer questions in an accurate and age-appropriate manner. That's why we've provided sample responses for the most frequently asked questions in every lesson.
Engage with other Hive users on an exclusive discussion forum, giving you the opportunity to brainstorm ideas, overcome challenges, and celebrate successes with likeminded peers.
