The mental health of our students is an important topic for us as a school community. Today, we see a noticeable increase in the number of students with anxiety and depression in schools. Just this year, New York State has identified Mental Health Education as a priority and a new mandate for schools. As we move forward to create a consistent K-12 approach to our students’ mental health, our goal is to educate our students about mental health so they will be able to effectively recognize signs and symptoms in themselves and others and will know where to turn for help. In our schools, we address mental health through various programs, such as mindfulness, yoga, health classes, co-curricular programs, among others. We want to create learning environments that decrease negative stigmas, and encourage students to communicate and to develop healthy, resilient behaviors.
