STUDENTS HEALTH

NYC DOE recognizes that many students have experienced loss, financial instability, or the disruption of social isolation. We know, after this prolonged closure, many of our students will require social-emotional support to help them re-engage and re-enter school.

Nurturing the social-emotional and mental well-being of students will be essential to resuming a life in school. We are committed to maintaining an emotionally and physically safe, supportive, and engaging learning environment to promote all students’ social and emotional well-being and development.


NYC DOE will provide the following resources to address mental health, behavioral, and emotional support for both students and staff:

  • General social-emotional learning/mental health resources are provided on the DOE website to all families, students, and staff.

  • Counselors, Social Workers, and Psychologist are available to support students in Social-Emotional Learning (SEL).

  • Small group, virtual training for faculty and staff is available addressing various challenges and/or new health and safety procedures.
