S7 Episode 14: Mental Health First Aid
Just as there are often signals that a person may need physical first aid, students’ behavior can indicate that a student may need mental health first aid.
In this episode, Arizona Department of Education School Safety & Social Wellness Program Grant Specialist Lindsay Walker and first-grade teacher Hannah Williams join hosts Danielle and Angelia. The four discuss how to look at student behavior as communication rather than something to manage and, specifically, trainings and resources the Arizona Department of Education offers to do with behavioral health and suicide prevention, known as Project A.W.A.R.E. (Advancing Wellness and Resiliency in Education).
