Capital District Special Education Task Force May 2019 Training
Mental Health Awareness Month:
Meeting the Social Emotional Needs of Students

Mental health is a pressing concern among school communities. Among youth aged 13 to 18 years old, 20% live with a mental health condition. Many mental health conditions first present during adolescence, however, many young people do not get the help that they need. On average, people with mental health challenges do not get help until 8-10 years after they begin to feel ill. During this time, unaddressed mental health issues can grow to negatively impact young students’ success throughout school and young adulthood.

It is critical that we provide the education and resources to allow educators to be able to teach our children. We need to consider the whole child and not just the academic child, we need to understand the relationship between health and learning when there is a balance to these optimal academic achievement can be achieved.
