Good mental health is not simply the absence of illness but also the possession of skills necessary to cope with life’s challenges. The U.S. Surgeon General’’s 2000 Report of Children’s Mental Health estimates that one in five children and adolescents will experience a significant mental health problem during their school years.
The family is first source of support for a child’s mental health. As educators, we strive to understand the role mental health plays in the school context because it is so central to our students’ social, emotional, and academic success. The web page is dedicated to providing resources for parents.
