Stephanie Taylor on Teletherapy and How Schools Should Approach Mental Health

Key Points

  • We need to start remembering that mental health is simply part of health. 

  • Students need to know they aren’t alone, they need to see examples of resiliency, and anything that happened to them – they need to know there’s a trauma-informed approach.
