What a victory for the world of mental health!
As of July 1, 2018, ALL New York State Schools will be required to educate their students about mental health. This movement is intended to help students better understand their emotional and mental wellness. Some of the key concepts will include: identifying signs of mental health problems, resources for help and support, and the negative stigma that surrounds mental illness.
The one thing that all my patients share in common, is that they wish they had gotten help sooner. I am so excited that we are moving towards a society that normalizes mental illness and allows people to seek out services in the way which they find MOST suitable .
Which leads to this question.... Do we need to set a similar curriculum for business and large corporations? 🤔
