What Does Mental Health and Wellness Mean in the Work of Helpers & Educators?

Starting a conversation about mental health and wellness with youth and families helps concerns be addressed in a timely way. Mental health literacy can help get this conversation going.

Mental health literacy is defined as:

  1. Understanding how to foster and maintain good mental health

  2. Understanding mental health concerns

  3. Decreasing Stigma

  4. Understanding how to seek help effectively

In this Mental Health section you will find information on mental health and wellness, mental health concerns, what they look like, and the assessment process. There is also information, (with links) on development and resources.

Check out these sections to assist youth and their families to talk about mental health, and to seek help when needed.
