Mental Health

Mental HealthStudents with mental health problems may also have behavioral issues requiring a behavior intervention plan to address immediate or immediate past triggers or predictors of problem behavior (e.g., teacher handing the student a long assignment, a peer making a negative remark, missing the bus this morning). Understanding how to address both long-range issues and immediate predictors requires staff accountability and coordination with a designated case manager coordinating communication. Behavior intervention plans are not designed to remediate mental health issues. Rather, they specify how students challenged by mental health factors will be supported in an educated environment.

The following materials are not exhaustive but provide important information on studying with mental disorders and emotional disturbance:
