Mental Health Awareness
Florida legislation (6A-1.094124) requires that all students, grades 6th -12th, receive instruction in mental health, child trafficking prevention, and substance abuse. In Volusia County schools, students will receive this instruction through a developmentally appropriate lesson within their class day. Lesson topics will include the following:
High School – Introduction to Mental Health, Coping Skills, Signs of Mental Illness, Seeking Help, and Safety & Substance Abuse
At Seabreeze High School, lessons will be delivered in the classroom by your child’s teacher in 4th period on March 20th, 5th period on March 27th, 6th period on April 3rd, 2nd period on April 10th, and 3rd period on April 17th.
Mental Health counselors and school counselors will be made available for any students who may be triggered or need to debrief about any of the material.
