Materials to share the mental health website

Iowa's AEAs have created PR resources for you to share with your stakeholders (families, educators, students, etc.) as part of a campaign to promote the new well-being and mental health website for Iowans created by the AEAs at www.IowaAEAMentalHealth.org. Within the next few weeks, we'll be sending through our PLAEA van delivery a calming coloring books for middle school-aged (5-8) students and a supply of bookmarks to each school building. Click the download to view both items.

If you would like to order more, please contact Connie Johnson. 

The website came from a request by the state legislature to help educators, parents, and students navigate resources related to mental health and well-being in Iowa. In addition to AEA mental health contacts for the schools, the site provides contacts for the home setting from Iowa’s Mental Health and Disability Services (MHDS). It also features vetted sources to educate visitors about addiction and substance abuse; anxiety and stress disorders; attention deficit disorder; depression; eating disorders; and self-harm.
