Safe schools and student well-being take a village of adults and students with varied interests, perspectives, and abilities collaborating to create caring, supportive, and academically productive schools. Schools are unofficial mental health care providers for at-risk children and youth whose un- and under addressed needs can compromise teaching and learning. This handbook provides up-to-date information on how to promote safety, wellness, and mental health in a manner that can help draw the needed village together. It aligns research and practice to support effective collaboration-it provides information and tools for educators, administrators, policy makers, mental health and community organizations, families, parents, and students to join forces to promote and support school safety, student well-being, and student mental health. For students, scholars, faculty, and researchers in education, counseling, and psychology, and administrators and community representatives.
