For Teachers

We recognize that the expectations placed teacheron teachers today are immense, and the resources and supports available to them are often limited. Not only are schools required to educate children with diverse needs during regular school hours, they increasingly care for these children in daycare and after-school programs—often without extra resources to enable this inclusion model.

 

Evidence is emerging from education and psychology that helping teachers and others who are influential in children’s lives to understand and recognize mental health issues and to improve their situations can benefit youth and contribute to their later success.” ~Tolan & Dodge, 2005
