Mental Health Education Curriculum Adopted in NY and VA
As discussed in this article, mental health education in schools to help kids understand the early signs and symptoms of mental illnesses in themselves and friends is currently only mandated in New York, where mental health instruction takes place from kindergarten to grade 12, and Virginia, where it’s been added to the curricula for grades nine and 10.
A good start!
Perhaps other States will consider adopting similar curriculum to support our kids!?
