This paper offers practical methods educators can use to promote mental health by:

  • supporting students in identifying and empathizing with diverse feelings and emotions

  • supporting students with self-regulation

  • identifying and enhancing students’ strengths rather than focusing on their needs

  • recognizing that when students are withdrawn or acting out, they are doing the best they can with the skills they have

  • providing opportunities throughout the day for students to be engaged in meaningful physical activity
