Oregon Classroom WISE: Mental Health Literacy for All Oregonians
Oregon Classroom WISE was created in response to requests from school staff, administrators, families, and community members for additional tools and resources to support the mental and emotional well-being of students and school staff. Rather than just offering a course on mental health topics, Oregon Classroom WISE is a suite of resources including free, online, self-guided modules for adults and youth interested in strengthening mental health and well-being. It includes a host of print and video resources, guided tutorials and role plays, and interviews with youth and school personnel. The content covers many important topics such as how to build safe, healthy relationships, best practices for supporting children and adolescents experiencing life challenges and distress, and skills for handling challenging behaviors.
Oregon Classroom WISE was developed in collaboration with the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) Network,
Northwest MHTTC School Mental Health Center
, and the
National Center for School Mental Health
. It is one piece of ODE's larger
Strengthening Mental Health in Education Initiative
Below are links to both Oregon-specific and national versions of Classroom WISE, additional resources, and recommended course pathways.
