Mental Health Training for Teaching Staff
At ORO Mental Health, we specialize in developing customized training programs to address the unique mental health needs of both schools and universities. Every year, educators, teachers, and administrators find themselves encountering students dealing with a variety of mental health issues, ranging from stress and extreme anxiety to addiction and suicidal thoughts.
In addition to these challenges, students often face conditions such as ADHD, bipolar disorder, self-injury, and opioid abuse. It's crucial to recognize that mental health issues disproportionately affect students from historically marginalized groups, exacerbating stress and hardship due to economic, health, and other disparities. Moreover, limited access to mental health support further compounds these challenges.
Various factors influence students' ability to thrive and develop, with mental health playing a pivotal role. Adversities like physical or emotional abuse, neglect, racism, and economic instability can result in toxic stress, hindering cognitive function development essential for academic success. Mental health issues significantly impact student attendance, academic performance, social and emotional development, and graduation rates.
To address this growing crisis, it is imperative for educational leaders to take action. Teachers, spending a substantial amount of time with students, play a crucial role in identifying and addressing mental health issues. Mental health training equips educators with the necessary tools to provide meaningful support, enabling students to thrive academically.
