Continuum of Mental Health
Saint Paul, Minnesota
This project was developed by the Mental Minnesota Association for Children's Mental Health through funding by the 2007 Campaign for Mental Health Recovery state implementation awards and completed in December 2008.
The Continuum of Mental Health Program is a training curriculum used to educate teachers and others in reducing barriers to learning by recognizing individual mental health concerns. During this project, individuals received training aimed at presenting accurate information about mental illness that could be utilized in elementary school settings.
The project utilized an array of materials developed to train teachers and other individuals on mental health disorders. Each individual trained received a teacher workbook, classroom activities, and lesson plans. This project promoted the reduction of social exclusion by creating an open environment and increased communication between teachers, students and families to discuss mental health.
