Episode 3: Mental Health at School Kids These Days!

    • Education

Kids can experience mental health issues and kids spend a lot of time at school. So what happens at school when a student needs extra help - for a temporary mental health issue or a long-term diagnosis? How do schools respond and are they a place to find help? Parents, when should you talk to the school about a child's difficulties - is it a phase, is it affecting academics?

In-studio guests: Bonnie Thurston, Director of Intensive School & Community Based Services at Denali Family Services and Sally Donaldson, middle school counselor at D’zantikiheeni Middle School in Juneau.
