Normalizing talking with Students about COVID-19

Normalizing talking with Students about COVID-19 related mental health challenges is a form of psychoeducation.


Psychoeducation is offered to individuals who are suffering from mental health challenges that are impairing their quality of life. The aim of psychoeducation is to give both the individuals who suffer from psychological conditions and their families a stronger base of knowledge regarding ways to cope and thrive—providing the person suffering from the psychological condition a better road map towards healthy functioning and management of their challenges.


Browse these COVID-19 psychoeducation resources and identify a couple that you will return to later to prepare yourself (and your staff) to talk with families and children about these issues at start of the academic year.
