Classroom Mental Health

Screenshot
Educators may be interested in Classroom Mental Health, a resource developed by the University of Michigan Depression Center with the help of high school teachers and administrators. This site is designed for teachers to be "a toolkit you can turn to for mental health information and classroom-tested ideas which you can use to promote a healthier, more productive classroom for you and your students." Visitors to this project will find a variety of guidelines, strategies, and exercises that can be used to help support and encourage psychological well-being among their students. Some are aimed at establishing a mental health-friendly classroom climate, such as ways to normalize discussion of the subject by building it into ordinary lessons. Other tools address how to support individual students, including a list of signs that may indicate a student is struggling with their mental health and guidelines for talking to students one-on-one. Additionally, this site includes self-care tips that may be helpful to everyone as well as ways to work with families to support a student's psychological health. While Classroom Mental Health was created with high school teachers in mind, educators at other levels and parents may also find this site's content helpful.
