Support for Mental, Emotional, and Behavioral Health
Promoting mental, emotional, and behavioral health involves the implementation of strategies to enhance the well-being of youth by promoting pro-social behavior, teaching coping skills, and developing students’ skills at decision making, self-awareness, and conducting relationships. The potential benefits of promoting mental, emotional, and behavioral health are greatest when (a) efforts are focused on young people and (b) schools offer a natural setting to foster such promotion.
The Office of Student Wellness is committed to the following:
1. Creating universal access to behavioral and mental health services for NH students
2. Educating families, students, and teachers about available school and community based services
