We Have Received The Following Request, To Add This Link To The Site. We Have Checked It And Believe It To Be Very Useful And Worth A Look.

Hi Kath,

At AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org, we've recently published a new guide to promoting student mental health.  You can find the guide here: http://www.accreditedschoolsonline.org/resources/student-mental-health-resources/

While mental health is slowly gaining mainstream societal recognition (if not acceptance), it can still be an exceedingly vague issue. We created this guidebook to help students and their families better understand the mental challenges that many students will face while in college and how to properly deal with them.

I noticed that you list a number of excellent mental health resources.

We crafted this guidebook with the help of two experts in the field, Dr. Friedemann Schaub and Blake LeVine. Schaub is the developer of the Personal Breakthrough and Empowerment program and the author of The Fear and Anxiety Solution. LeVine is a life coach who uses his personal experience with bipolar disorder to educate people  about managing mental illness.

With the start of the new school year, it's our goal to get this guidebook in front of as many students, parents, and teachers as possible. Will you help us achieve this goal by including our guide as a link resource on your site?
