Mental Health Education Gives Students Hope
“Since 1 in 4 have a mental illness and suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death, I think we have a case that mental health education can possibly save lives.” –
Mastering Mental Health’s partnership with a West Virginia High School is showing some exciting results. A group of students were given the Behind the Mask: Dealing with Anger, Grief, and Rejection, a 15-week Mental Health Curriculum.
Over 24% more of students who were taught the mental health curriculum said they know how to make others feel hopeful over those who were not educated.
Additionally, nearly 20% more of the educated students said they know how to get hope back when they feel hopeless.
Results show 20% more also said they know how to recognize when other students need hope.
