Just finished and interesting twitter chat at #BellLetsTalk.  Thank you STARS.  I think raising this awareness for mental health is so important.  I can’t stress enough about the amazing program I was fortunate enough to be trained in during internship.  Screen Shot 2016-01-17 at 10.20.07 AM


The support shown tonight at the twitter chat was phenomenal.  It is so important to be able to communicate to our students and try to show them some healthy, positive ways to cope with negative feelings.  If they can recognize what they are feeling, then they can take a breath and try to change the negative feeling.

I know how serious mental health issues are.  I have people struggling with different things in my family.  The best thing to do for them is to listen and just be there when they need you.  That is what we need to do in our classrooms.  Be there.  If you are patient in waiting for them to talk to you, I believe they will, don’t be too persistent…
