the role of education
Schools are the fabric of our communities and the foundation for positive mental health, wellbeing, and stability in life. Schools play an essential role in prevention and early intervention through their policies, practices, and programs.
Schools experience mental health crises around the world. Knowing how to intervene in a school setting when mental health needs arise can be challenging.
Fewer and fewer teachers are being retained, students with mental illness are dropping out of high school, anxiety, depression, and suicide rates continue to rise, and there is a shortage of treatment for both teachers and students when it comes to their mental health needs.
From evidence-based practices and a neurological foundation, totumlink provides understanding about mental health, the brain, student behaviors, and how to address significant, negative and traumatic experiences to continue wellbeing for a lifetime.
Kids and educators are experiencing trauma at school and at home.
