Title : Reimagining “mental health” in schools: A critical look at the medicalized view of distress in youth
Description : Based on experiences in designing and delivering a “mental health” course in the city’s North End, this inquiry presents findings in the form of critical observations about which supports and approaches that seemed to be most transformative for students. Following a brief description of the course’s most relevant topics, an argument is made for a wider implementation of its principles. Student reflections are included to demonstrate the quality of growth and learning that took place in the class. The session concludes by identifying implications related to the need to reframe our understanding of, and approach to, the mental health of children and youth in our schools.
