Faculty Professional Development – Mental Health

Student life in the MUS takes many forms. There are the student social events like the Prom and the MS Movie Night as well as the EXCSEL program, Tikkun Olam and advisory. As a means to provide support in an aspect of student life that is increasingly needed in schools – Mental Health, the MUS faculty participated in a workshop during our most recent professional development day to learn, and collaborate on the specific needs of children in the upper school cohort. Facilitated by Dr. Max Doshay, PsyD, the indicators of adolescent depression and anxiety were presented along with good practices in interventions. This session is only the beginning to the MUS Mental Health Support initiative. Student and parent workshops are being designed and continued professional development for the MUS faculty team will be embedded in our growth of all MUS faculty. Additionally we have four MUS faculty members who were recently certified by Mental Health America of San Diego in Mental Health First Aid.
