Seminar Short DescThe inclusion of mental health within existing health education is critical to the healthy development of all young people and it is critical to begin planning and collaborating in order to ensure successful implementation of updated or integrated curriculum.

This full-day workshop offers school officials the opportunity to truly understand the Comprehensive Guide provided by NYS, ask questions, collaborate and plan for successful integration and implementation within each district.
Seminar Full DescElementary, middle and high school students across the state of New York have a new topic on their educational agendas as they head back to class this fall: mental health.

On July 1, a new law took effect in New York, which adds a paragraph to the state's Education Law mandating mental health as part of health education in schools. New York is the first state in the U.S. to require mental health to be taught as part of health education.

Estimates from the National Institutes of Mental Health show that among U.S. adults 19.1 percent have had an anxiety disorder within the past year; 31.1 percent will experience an anxiety disorder at some point in their lives; and 6.7 percent are estimated to have had at least one major depressive episode.

The numbers among children are similarly if not more jarring. Data published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry from a nationally representative sample of 10,123 adolescents ages 13 to 18 found that 22.2 percent had a serious mental illness.

The intention is to give students the knowledge they need to recognize in themselves and others when they need help.
Other data estimate 50 percent of mental illness begins by age 14, and 75 percent begins by age 24.

And people aren t getting help: The 2016 National Survey on Drug Use and Health showed that more than 11 million Americans do not receive needed mental health services.

We need to change attitudes around mental health, says Coles, whose work focuses on anxiety disorders in both children and adults. Starting to educate children in schools makes sense and is an inclusive preventative approach to overall wellbeing.
