ABCs of Mental Health Educator’s Resource

January 1, 2012 — ABCs of Mental Health is a website that offers early-warning signs, prevention and intervention strategies for educators working with youth. Using details about a variety of mental health concerns and behaviours, the site provides summaries of green-light, yellow-light and red-light behaviour patterns along with useful strategies for the education worker when addressing a variety of presented behaviours.

Resources cover concerns and behaviours for youth from Early Childhood (age 3) through Early Adolesence (age 14). The inclusion of a Behaviours Map provides education workers with a quick reference guide to help identify the behavioural area(s) a student may be exhibiting.

The site is currently under peer-review and provides opportunities for education workers to review the content.
