Mental health in schools training package
Schools provide a great opportunity to promote mental health and emotional wellbeing, prevent mental health problems and identify and support children who are experiencing emotional difficulties. This mental health in schools training package, developed by the WHO Regional Office for the Eastern Mediterranean, will enable educators to better support the mental health needs of their students and to take practical steps that are implementable in school settings. It is intended for those involved in the educational process, including teachers, school administrators, nurses, social workers and school counsellors, in addition to educational policymakers and nongovernmental organizations. This training package consists of five key components that should be used together and includes: a manual, lecture outlines, lectures/slide presentations and handouts, as well as an implementation and evaluation plan.
