Everymind’s Mental Health Resource Guide

Mental health is defined by the World Health Organization as a state of well-being in which every individual realizes his or her own potential, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to her or his community.  That state of being mentally healthy exists along a continuum and for some can vary widely day to day. 

Here in Montgomery County, EveryMind has developed this printable guide of local and national resources, hotlines, support groups and other resources that provide mental health support.  It is available on the Everymind website.

October is National Bullying Prevention Month

Bullying among school-age youth is a pervasive problem that challenges the teaching and learning environment, increases mental health and behavior problems, diminishes school connectedness and violates the right of students to receive equal educational opportunities in a safe environment. In response, schools have an ethical and legal responsibility to prevent bullying of any kind, ideally as part of a comprehensive approach to ensuring school safety and promoting positive behavior.
Visit this post from the American Psychological Association, for information on Bullying, Electronic Harassment and Aggression Prevention. In Montgomery County, these agencies are working to address the problem locally.
