Nassau BOCES Mental Health Consortium
The Nassau BOCES Mental Health Consortium is a collective of school districts convened to address the prevalent issue of mental health and wellness within the realm of education. The consortium is designed to offer practical skills and background knowledge that will assist it's component districts in the implementation of plans to address the new and any future regulations or recommendations associated with Mental Health education as issued by NYSED.
We will identify, explore and establish curriculum resources to develop mental health curriculum and school/district initiatives as well as leverage various community members as resources in the establishment of mental health recognition, treatment and acceptance. The goal is to create a "Culture of Care" within the district which will nurture methods designed to enhance student understanding, attitudes and behaviors that promote health, well-being and human dignity.
