Education (EDUC) - Mental Health Issues in School Populations

EDUC 5636  Mental Health Issues in School Populations


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course is intended for persons preparing to be educational leaders. The intention of the course is to create awareness in educational leaders of the nature of mental health issues common in school age populations. Course participants will examine means by which students experiencing mental health issues, or who come from families experiencing mental health issues, may be identified and served. Measures that can be taken by administrators to support teachers working with students experiencing mental health issues are a major focus of the course. Another major focus of the course will be the actions administrators may take to create support for students experiencing mental health issues, effective ways of working with their parents, and with other agencies to better serve these students. Common concerns of teachers and administrators, such as the management of students' medications in the school setting, will be addressed.
