Providing Social and Emotional Support for Students

As our nation continues to engage in serious discussions around school safety and serving the mental health needs of young people, we remind educators and parents to seek resources that can help students who are struggling with stress, trauma and other mental health issues.
In the months ahead, we will continue to develop resources around social-emotional learning and will support teachers as they help their students manage their emotions, cope with stress, mitigate the effect of unhealthy influences, and access mental health resources.
