Educators are often on the front line when it comes to recognizing a child who experiences mental health problems. These issues can manifest as disruptive behaviors, but often the changes are not as visible and obvious.

As part of our One in Five Minds program, Clarity Child Guidance Center is committed to helping schools identify students at risk and connect them to care when needed. Additionally, teachers need to remain mentally healthy themselves in order to provide the best possible care for students.
