In 2009, the Children’s Mental Health Matters Campaign developed Teacher Resource Kits as a tool for those who work with children. In 2016, we released the new and revised Educator Resource Kit. We encourage you to download here and share with your colleagues. Hard copies of the kit are available, at no charge.
