    Considering the introduction of death education to schools from a mental health point of view, the present article examines avoidance behavior on the part of teachers as well as pupils within a classroom and presents the use of role simulation and simulation games as a strategy to overcome these difficulties. Role simulation is presented as an intervention tool in promoting openness to challenging information, enhancing attitudinal change, and promoting active involvement on the part of school teaching staff for death education introduction to the schools. Simulation games are described and suggested as a strategy to be used by teachers in classrooms for various aspects of death education.
