COVID-19 resources for special education

Mental health is a necessary component for the promotion of students’ developmental, social, and academic well-being.  Mental health does not necessarily mean the absence of some form of mental illness, but rather having the means and necessary skills to promote the ability to cope with challenges in life. If ignored, mental health problems can interfere with children's learning, development, relationships, and physical health (National Association of School Psychologist, 2017).
