Mental health literacy in the middle school classroom

Authors: Bevan, Danica;

Mental health literacy in the middle school classroom

Abstract

Middle school is a time when students learn a greater understanding of the world, create a sense of independence, develop new interests and skills, and make new friends. It is a crucial time where students need to learn valuable coping strategies and life skills in conjunction with academics. The emotional effects of COVID-19 have intensified the need for social-emotional learning (SEL) strategies and mental health literacy (MHL) to be taught in schools. Many teachers are lacking knowledge around mental health, which leaves them unaware of how to support their students. The goal of this study was to determine if teaching a mental health literacy program elicited any changes to teachers’ knowledge, understanding, and attitudes towards mental health. This study used both qualitative and quantitative data, in the form of reintervention and post-intervention surveys, participant journals, and a focus group interview, from three teacher participants to better understand the effects of teaching the Elementary Mental Health Literacy Resource (EMHLR). The results of this mixed methods study showed that there was little to no change in teacher’s attitudes towards mental health, a mental health literacy program was valuable for increasing teachers’ knowledge of mental health, there was concern around the terminology associated with mental health and stigma, and finally, the three teacher participants were able to critically reflect about the state of their own mental health and wellbeing and make changes accordingly. https://viurrspace.ca/bitstream/handle/10613/27349/Bevan.pdf?sequence=3&isAllowed=y
