Since July 2018, we have provided technical assistance and training to help schools deliver mental health instruction as part of the K-12 curriculum through a comprehensive website and quality educational events that meet the individual needs of the entire school community.
Every member of a school community has a role in supporting youth mental health – educators, parents and caregivers, and providers. By supporting common understanding and shared language, MHANYS is committed to helping communities support the mental health of students.
Educators took advantage of the myriad of resources and professional development opportunities following move to remote learning in response to Covid-19. MHANYS School Mental Health Resource and Training Center facilitated 55 live webinars serving 8,715 participants and 72% of the educators who took our self-paced, online training did so since March 2020. This data is included in the professional development section.
In 2020, MHANYS received a one-year grant from Mother Cabrini Health Foundation to support a Family Education Project enhancing our ability to raise awareness about youth mental health concerns among parents and caregivers, and reduce stigma. The project included monthly 30-minute webinars and a Fall Learning Community series that was attended by educators, parents and caregivers, and community providers. Success of the project led to a second year of funding in 2021.
We are proud to partner with community providers, state agencies and professional membership organizations to deliver pertinent information to education stakeholders through presentations, technical assistance and outreach.
