With school resuming, some students may struggle with feelings of anxiety and depression. Rosecrance has resources to help support parents, teachers, students, caregivers, and others during this time of transition.
The 2023 Back-to-School Toolkit from Rosecrance behavioral health experts focuses on prevention and education that adults can lean on if they know a child who is struggling with their mental health or alcohol and substance use.
Inside the toolkit you’ll find:
- Fact sheets and tips for adults
- Tips for youth
- Virtual support group for parents
- Advice from clinical experts
- Treatment options for youth
As part of our mission to support communities and help them thrive, we want to equip parents, teachers, and students with resources and tools to foster a mentally healthy school year.
Your student may benefit from an assessment if they:
- Have lost interest in activities that they used to enjoy
- Sleep too much or too little
- Isolate from friends and family
- Engage in self-harm behaviors (such as cutting or burning their skin)
- Smoke, vape, drink alcohol, or use drugs
- Engage in risky or destructive behavior alone or with friends
- Have thoughts of suicide
If you or someone you know needs immediate help, call or text the 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline at 988.
