School-based Mental Health and Wellness
Emotional wellness helps determine our capacity to handle stress, relate to others and make good choices. At MVLA, wellness is a way of seeing and making decisions that connect physical health, mental health, and learning. Wellness works best in a culture of kindness and respect in which we watch out for each other. There is a saying that it takes a village - and we are the village. Each person associated with MVLA plays a role in student wellness and makes a difference in each other’s emotional safety and wellbeing.
Mental health promotion, school infrastructure, and mental health intervention services support the mental, behavioral, and social-emotional health of students and further students academic achievement. Students’ and parents’ trust, connection, and participation in the school setting is pivotal to student mental health and wellbeing.
We share and update information and online resources to support our students and each other towards emotional wellness on our dedicated webpage, found under the "Education" resources.
