OnFocus- Office of Children’s Mental Health Director Linda Hall today announces the publication of a new fact sheet focused on building children’s social and emotional skills and what our communities can do to increase these skills.
- When kids are taught the skills needed to build relationships, increase self and social awareness, and make responsible decisions, it leads to life-long mental wellness, academic and career success.
- Over 80% of parents and teachers, as well as most high school students think it’s important to prioritize social and emotional programming in childcare settings and schools.
- For every dollar invested in social-emotional learning programming, there is an $11 return on investment in long-term benefits to the student and to the community.
