Teachers Trained to Notice Abnormal Students; Training Sponsored by Drug Companies

Is That Kid Normal? Teachers Trained to Notice When Students May Not Be; Training Sponsored by Drug Companies.

( - If parents can't or won't admit their child has a mental problem, a teacher with rudimentary training may spot the warning signs for them.

In the wake of the Newtown shootings, Miami-Dade County Public Schools, the nation's fourth-largest school district, says it will start training hundreds of school psychologists, social workers and guidance counselors, teachers and school staffers to identify possible mental health problems in junior- and high-school students.

"Teachers, coaches and other school personnel who interact with students every day, are in an excellent position to notice when students may be showing signs of mental health problems," says the American Psychiatric Foundation, the philanthropic and educational arm of the American Psychiatric Association.
