New York, Virginia become first to require mental health education in schools

On Sunday, New York and Virginia became the first two states to enact laws requiring mental health education in schools.

New York’s law updates the health curriculum in elementary, middle and high schools to include material on mental health. Virginia’s law mandates that mental health education be incorporated into physical education and health curricula for ninth- and 10th-graders.
Boost was designed specifically to address this and to be a way for schools to integrate this type of training. It is time to start proactively learning about mental health!
