This training is designed to help executive teams develop and implement comprehensive interagency action plans based on community needs.
Mental health is important and plays a role in our daily lives. It refers to a person’s emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It affects how a person thinks, feels, and acts.
Mental health problems can develop in children and youth at any age. Studies show that 20 percent of students in kindergarten through twelfth grade suffer from a mental health issue on any given day in any given classroom; and 10 percent of these issues are serious enough to affect how that student behaves at home, at school, and with others.
