School Mental Health

 

Schools are among the most important places to develop good mental health. Children spend thousands of hours at school, and mental health symptoms often show up at school.  About 1 in 6 children experience mental health symptoms that interfere with school performance, and most students receive help and treatment for mental health issues at school.  Preparing teachers to use strategies to help students cope with stress and to develop positive mental health, and equipping teachers with strategies to address mental health symptoms that do arise, improve the child’s success in the classroom with teachers and peers.  This course will prepare participants to assess a school, to practice strategies for working effectively with school staff, to provide school staff effective interventions to help students showing disruptive behavior, anxiety, sadness, trouble focusing and completing work, and conflict with others.  This course will also prepare participants to help schools respond to disasters or difficult local events.  Finally, this course will prepare participants to help school staff apply positive mental health practices in their own lives to function effectively at school and with others.
