Based on his book, Dr. Carney talks about research-based evidence, practical tools and ready-to-use strategies to help create a culture of positive mental health in classrooms. By working together, teachers and the larger educational community can make a difference to a student's mental health - not through expensive or specialized interventions but through compassion, inclusion, encouragement and effective instruction.
