New York and Virginia are the first states in the country to require mental health to be included in health education. According to a State Assembly memo in support of the regulation, “By ensuring that young people learn about mental health, we increase the likelihood that they will be able to more effectively recognize signs in themselves and others, including family members, and get the right help.”
The Mental Health Association of New York State (MHANYS) recommends several core concepts be included in the mental health curriculum, including “Instruction in identifying appropriate professionals, services, and family/social supports for treating and maintaining recovery from mental illness.” Offering ConcernCenter to your students directly meets their recommendation.
