Mental Health and Well-being

Mental health refers to the emotional, social, cognitive, behavioral, physical, and relational thriving of individuals and systems.

ODE believes that mental health is centered within a continuum of care that meets each person’s needs for physical and emotional safety, security, social connection, identity, diversity, and purpose.

ODE has a number of mental and behavioral health initiatives that focus on the prevention, intervention and response to the mental health needs of school communities. These include:

  • Care & Connection
  • Mental Health Toolkit
  • Classroom WISE for Oregon
  • Integrated Model of Mental Health
  • Mental Health Guidance & Resources
  • Strengthening Mental Health in Education Initiative
  • Suicide Prevention (Adi's Act)
  • School Safety & Prevention System (SSPS)
  • Every Student Belongs
