Mental, Social, & Behavioral Health

  • While education is a primary focus of public education, it is important to us to ensure children are safe and healthy.   School-based health programs can focus on promoting wellness, helping prevent health problems, and working with families to providing treatment.

    Effective programs:

    • Promote the healthy social and emotional development of all children and youth
    • Recognize when young people are at risk for or are experiencing mental health problems
    • Identify how to intervene early and appropriately when there are problems

     

    When you, your child, friend or family is facing tough times, it is difficult to know what to do or who to call for help. Getting the help you need can be confusing and exhausting. Here is a simple guide for navigating through challenging situations, and the community services that may help.
