K-12 Mental Health: Organizational Strategies and Health Promotion Interventions that Support Emotional Resilience
Monday, November 2, 2015: 10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
It is estimated that one-half of all mental health symptoms experienced throughout the lifetime begin by age 14. Yet, nearly 80% of children and adolescents, between the ages of 6 to 17 who need mental health services, are not receiving mental health care. This session offers school-based strategies to address this gap.
Session Objectives: Identify elements that support the successful implementation and sustainability of two school-based mental health service delivery models. Describe how an after-school program on “cooking” impacts the self-efficacy and resilience of elementary age, low-income children and addresses food insecurity experienced by their families. Discuss the way parenting interventions might be redefined when offered in community mental health settings.
