Parent Education Night - Sep. 25 - VIDEO & RESOURCES
"Social Emotional Wellness Talk" featured award-winning speaker and pioneer of the youth mental health movement Ross Szabo (Wellness Director, Geffen Academy UCLA). Thank you MSMF (Matthew Silverman Memorial Foundation), "Behind Happy Faces", PTA Council and BHHS Norman Aid Wellness Center for educating parents on such a critical topic.
 

For those of you who were unable to attend, here are a few resources for you from Ross Szabo:

1. Video of my mental health message to review or share with friends.

2. Discussion guide on mental health

3. A helpful chapter from my book “Behind Happy Faces”

"WE NEED TO TEACH MENTAL HEALTH THE SAME WAY THAT WE TEACH PHYSICAL HEALTH!"

—Compare mental health to physical health. We don’t only encourage people who have cancer, diabetes, heart problems or other issues to seek help and tell everyone else that they only need to go to a doctor when they have a disease. However, we do tend to tell people they should seek help for their mental health only when they’ve completely broken down. This isn’t working. Mental health isn’t having a problem; it’s how you address all of the problems in your life. When someone takes care of their physical health they eat right, workout and take care of their body. For someone to take care of their mental health they need to think about how they cope, communicate, what their relationships are like and take care of their minds.
