“It’s very REAL. We will actually be able to implement this.” “I really enjoyed the practical suggestions for using this almost immediately in our schools.” These sentiments were echoed over and over again as Red Flags conducted trainings around Ohio throughout the 2015-2016 school year. Participants appreciated the emphasis mental health as fundamental to overall health and the wisdom of early intervention as essential to children’s health and development. They were enthusiastic that building a culture of mental health in their schools can be inexpensive, sustainable, easily achievable, and beneficial to students and staff alike. Two trainings remain for this school year: March 18 in Cambridge and April 29 in Columbus (to register click here). Over the summer we will be deciding on sites for next year’s trainings, including possible trainings outside Ohio.
