New Online Training Program For Mental Health

The School Mental Health Resource & Training Center, an initiative of the Mental Health Association in New York State, Inc. (MHANYS), has launched a new self-paced online training program to further prepare educators, administrators and other school staff with an in-depth understanding of how to support the mental health of students. The online course outlines New York State’s first-in-nation law requiring mental health instruction in all K-12 schools, and it explains how individual school personnel can do their part to help implement it.

The launch of the online training program follows an impactful first seven months for the School Mental Health Resource & Training Center. Already, more than 10,800 individual users have visited the Center’s website/online learning space to gain information about the law and youth mental health.

MHANYS created the Resource & Training Center to help implement the state’s mental health education law, which went into effect in July 2018. The center provides school districts and individual educators with assistance and guidance and is available to offer treatment and support options and information about the recovery process.

The center is supported through $1 million in grant funding that the New York State Legislature and Governor Andrew Cuomo included in last year’s state budget.
