You are invited to take part in a research project about teachers’ opinions of and experiences with the mental health needs of elementary and middle school students. Researchers estimate that 75% of children with mental health difficulties fail to receive needed services, and schools can be extremely instrumental in helping to connect these children to appropriate treatment. If you decide to participate in this study, you will be asked to provide some background demographic information as well as to complete questionnaires regarding your thoughts about child mental health issues. You will even have the opportunity to request a presentation of the results of this research at your school! Research results will provide insight into school-based methods to better promote student psychological health and well-being. You and your colleagues can be innovative leaders in assisting students with mental health needs. This study is voluntary and your responses will remain anonymous and confidential. You will not be asked to provide your name or any other identifying information as part of this study. If you choose to provide your email in order to request a presentation of research results to be held at your school, your email will be kept separate from your responses and used only for the purposes of scheduling the research presentation. Eligible participants include teachers and other elementary or middle school personnel who interact frequently with students. Additionally, participants must be at least 18 years old to complete this survey. This survey will take about 15 minutes to complete.
