Schools, Parents, Students and Mental Health: How Can Clinicians Help?
Educators are being asked to do more and more to support the emotional wellbeing of students and understand the mental health needs of their students. Programs are consistently being introduced and professional development offered. What’s working and what isn’t? How much can we expect of teachers and administrators? How is the collaboration and communication between parents, schools, and outside providers going? And what are students actually earning in about their mental health in school?
