Mental Health Awareness
Get access to thousands of lesson plansJoin us
Nearly one in five children in the United States show symptoms of a mental health disorder, yet 80% of them will not receive treatment. This collection provides tools for proactive measures for all students such as healthy eating, physical exercise, and adequate sleep. It also includes resources for specific conditions that affect many young people as well as adults.
In addition to more access to professionals in schools, we hope all teachers will incorporate mental health topics into existing curriculum with these resources.

And we hope paraprofessionals, school support personnel, parents, school nurses, and counselors will find these resources of help, too.
