According to the State of Mental Health in America 2018 only 27.6% of youth in Nebraska who experienced a Major Depressive Episode (MDE) received some consistent treatment. ESU 16’s Mental Health team is taking a front-line approach to reducing barriers to mental health services. Check out our flow chart to the process for students to receive ESU 16 Mental Health Services!

Mental Health Awareness Week gives us a chance to highlight why mental health is as important as physical health to our quality of life. Access to mental health services in schools is critical to a child’s ability to thrive academically and in life. Schools offer an ideal context for prevention, intervention, positive development, and regular communication between school and families. Mental health services provided in schools that are not appropriate to the learning environment risk being ineffective or even counterproductive.To meet student needs, collaboration between schools and community mental health providers is a necessity. Learn more about school-based mental health services and it's affect on student learning and well-being - Credit National Association of School Psychologist https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/mental-health/school-psychology-and-mental-health/school-based-mental-health-services

It is National Deaf Awareness Week! This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Friday's Tip Of The Day: Be aware of the fatigue factor. Listening with a hearing loss is quite tiring. As the day wears on, your student, friend or family member may need a break from watching and listening. Accurate listening may wane in the latter part of the school/work day.

Thursday's Tip Of The Day: When you are using a whiteboard or a smart board, best practice for teaching students with hearing loss is to write first, then turn and talk. Using an Elmo is a great option since you are facing the class as you write. *For Friends for family members, please look at the deaf/hard of hearing person the whole time you are speaking.

It is National Deaf Awareness Week! This week the Teachers of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing at ESU 16 will be sharing some TIPS for when you are visiting with your hard of hearing students, friends or family members. Wednesday's Tip Of The Day: Preferential seating may be more than just front of the classroom placement. Depending on whether one or both ears are affected, your student's seat could be almost anywhere in the room! Factors to consider are: closeness to the main speaker, usually the teacher; the availability of speechreading the other students; the proximity to other noise makers such as pencil sharpeners, hallway noise, or fans. Allow the student/person to move to where they can hear the best.

Tuesday's Tip Of The Day: Small group learning sessions can cause a large amount of noise! Consider placing the hard of hearing student's group in a quiet alternate location. *If it is a friend or family member with a hearing loss, please be considerate that it is very difficult for them to hear in group settings such as restaurants, meetings, and social events.
