Carol Todd at SUMMIT 2017: Students face common, and often complex, mental health challenges that necessitate a focus on prevention and early intervention. This starts and ends with consistent, constant care and support across the education spectrum. If we teach social and emotional skills in the classroom, establish peer support programs, and apply a well-being lens to existing policies and practices, we can generate enough meaningful change to shift culture. Everyone has a role to play in the mental health and well-being of students, and only through our collective efforts and shared responsibility can we create connected, caring communities.
