Teaching is what teachers do. But, we all know that being a teacher is much, much more than that. Learning to read, write, add, and subtract is what many think school is about, but there are crucial social, emotional, and psychological skills that develop in tandem with learning. A wise teacher once said, “What’s the point of learning if students are miserable?”
That’s why we’ve created the Mental Health Moonshot! This activity is from our new course, Mental Health Matters, which focuses on ways to support student mental health and explores actionable ideas to address mental health in school and beyond.
Designed with pathways to study strategies for supporting the mental health of PreK-2, Elementary, Middle, High school–and even teachers, course 5267 sheds light on mental illnesses, challenges, and stigma. Enjoy a sneak peek of this new course by completing the activity below!
