Resilience and Mental Health Promotion in Schools
Tucker, Shelley
BU Journal of Graduate Studies in Education, v8 n1 p40-45 2016
Students enter schools with greater personal challenges today than in the past. Although mental health promotion is not new to the educational system, the approach to it needs to change. Despite the adversities that students experience, many enter the system with the capacity to manage and overcome these challenges in their lives. Often, this quality of resilience is neither recognized nor fostered in schools. Educators need to consider resilience and the related research-based interventions to foster positive mental health in students.
