Mental Health Training for Students

  • In Florida, quality mental and emotional health education has been identified as a high priority.  Effective since the 2019/20 school year, statutes have been in place which require all districts to provide education to students in the following areas. In November of 2022, the 5-hour mental health education requirement was changed to encompass resiliency standards. 

    Resiliency Education (5 hours of instruction for students in grades 6-12).   

    Substance Use and Abuse Health Education (grades K-12)

    Child Trafficking Prevention Education (grades K-12)

    The School Support and Learning Divisions have collaborated to develop a plan for the implementation of these requirements.  Below is a link to Charlotte County Public School's Implementation Plan through the Florida Required Instruction Reporting Portal.
