August is back-to-school month, and we all know what that means. The new school year means new clothes, shoes, school supplies and more. But part of preparing to go back to school, whether as a student, teacher, parent or caregiver, also means taking care of your mental health and well-being.
As part of our #BeTheDifference campaign, we’re focusing on both students’ and teachers’ mental health all month long.
Here’s how you can #BeTheDifference during the month of August:
During the transition back into the school year, students and teachers alike can face a variety of mental health challenges, so knowing how to recognize and provide assistance tailored to the individual’s needs is important.
Thank you for being the difference in your community and spreading the word about Mental Health First Aid!
