College Mental Health Skills
How can we prepare our kids for the challenges that that college brings?
One increasingly popular answer is to teach them skills derived from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). DBT helps strengthen emotional regulation and problem-solving skills and can help students handle stress and make effective decisions for a positive college experience.
How Does Anxiety Affect Kids in School?
Sometimes anxiety is easy for teachers to spot— like when a child is feeling nervous before a test at school. But that’s not always the case. Anxiety in the classroom can look like something else entirely — an upset stomach, disruptive or angry behavior, ADHD, or even a learning disorder. Here are some tips to help educators identify anxiety, and help kids thrive.
The Child Mind Institute is proud to observe Bebe Moore Campbell National Minority Month this July.
