Mental health concerns in students are real, may be painful and, if left untreated, can have serious, life changing consequences. Early recognition, intervention and treatment of mental health concerns make a positive and lasting difference in an adolescent's life.
For more than 10 years the Typical or Troubled?® School Mental Health Education Program has equipped teachers, coaches and school personnel with the knowledge needed to recognize the warning signs of mental health concerns and what course of action to take in addressing potential issues. From 2017 - 2019 we spent our time redeveloping our curriculum and delivery model, pilot testing the new program in 2019
The Typical or Troubled?® program helps train educational staff to:
- NOTICE Warning Signs
- TALK About Mental Health
- ACT Appropriately in Referring Students to Resources
The Typical or Troubled?® Program Components:
- Pre-Training E-Learning Module
- Live Skill Based Training Session
- Online Assessments
The Classroom Portion of the program can be brought to your local school community in two different ways:
- APA Certified Instructor co-delivers the program with your individual school mental health team.
- APA Certified Instructor trains your districts school mental health professionals in the classroom material, to deliver on their own across the district.
