Supporting Students with Depression at School
By [posts-author-link] on [date]
This book, produced by the National Association of Nurses, provides practical guidance and resources for teachers and school-based mental health professionals working to support children with depression at school. Aligned with the multi-tier system of supports (MTSS) framework and using a problem-solving model, this resource includes research on the prevention and intervention of depressive symptoms among children and youth, concrete descriptions of commonly-used assessment and intervention tools, and outlines specific action steps educators can take to support students with depressive disorders in the classroom. The authors also provide advice on improving school-community collaboration in mental health service provision and directions on incorporating mental health services into a response-to -intervention (RTI) framework.
