Mental Health Matters in Schools

October 5, 2017 12-3pm

 

At any given time, as many as 25% of the students in your school have a diagnosible mental illness. Across the county, that leads to as many as 5 million children battling the symptoms which may be going unnoticed.  In some areas, with higher rates of trauma or poverty, these statistics are mild in comparison to the need.  Often, these children are punished for behaviors associated with their diagnoses when treatment could make a lasting impact on their long term success rate.

Educators need actionable tools that can help them recognize and respond to these mental health needs until treatment can be effective.  You'll learn the tools you can use in the Mental Health in Schools Virtual Masterclass.
