Student Mental Health: Awareness, Intervention, and Referral
Get an overview of student mental health concerns and educators' responsibilities to report concerns so students can get the help they need.
Students carry their mental health needs with them wherever they go – including school. Mental health issues can negatively affect a child’s ability both to learn and to follow classroom guidelines for behavior. Educators are uniquely positioned to notice mental health struggles and are obligated to report those concerns so students can get the help they need. This course is designed to provide an overview of student mental health concerns and educators’ responsibilities. Topics covered include the scope of mental health needs in school-age students; how anxiety and depression present in young people; warning signs and risk factors; and when and how to intervene and refer/report students who need support.
