Mental Health Program for Sacramento Unified School District Elementary School Principals.
Davis, Robert F.
This study reports on the development of a professionally prepared and delivered mental health program addressed to the needs and interests of elementary principals in a California school district. The needs of the principals were identified at a series of meetings with the district's principals association in which 15 program goals were established. Execution of the program included the communication of these needs to and consultation with school administration, the personnel service office, the staff training services department, and with appropriate community service agencies. A series of three 2-hour mental health workshops for principals, conducted with the assistance of mental health specialists, focused on the subjects of stress, anxiety, drug abuse, alcohol, mental problems, and suicide prevention. Evaluation of the program by means of a test instrument developed by the author and administered after the third workshop showed, on the part of participant principals, improved, positive attitudes toward mental health.
