Office of Children’s Mental Health – Building Social and Emotional Skills

This month the Office of Children’s Mental Health released a new fact sheet focused on building children’s social and emotional skills and what our communities can do to increase these skills. 

Highlights include: 

  • Over 80% of parents and teachers, as well as most high school students think it’s important to prioritize social and emotional programming in childcare settings and schools.
  • For every dollar invested in social-emotional learning programming, there is an $11 return on investment in long-term benefits to the student and to the community.
