Teachers are an important part of establishing and maintaining healthy environments for students to learn and grow. They also play an important role in guiding students suffering from excessive stress to professionals in the building who can be of assistance. Avoiding students who display signs of stress does not help them. This Mental Health Primer on Students Experiencing Stress provides information for classroom teachers to help them identify behaviors in the classroom with the goal of directing teachers to appropriate resources for the students. The intent is not for teachers themselves to treat students, but for teachers to recognize behaviors and provide tangible resources for the students as needed.
