Addressing Mental Health Issues in the Classroom

Teachers are noticing the increasing numbers of students in their classes who are exhibiting behaviours that are problematic and perplexing.  This workshop will help develop teachers’ understanding of what mental health issues might look like in students and how best to help the students in their classrooms.  Teachers aren’t expected to be psychologists or medical practitioners in resolving these issues, but there are ways for them to help students with mental health issues.
