4 credits


Full course description

SIGNALS - Social-Emotional and Mental Health Development for Children and Teens is designed to equip educators with knowledge about indicators that can impact the mental health development and social engagement of children and teens. Completing this course will help educators and youth development stakeholders go beyond awareness of mental illness and strengthen the development of positive mental health in children and youth.

The course is comprised of five modules. Each module in the course contains a variety of learning activities (e.g., readings, articles, handouts, videos, and other materials) and concludes with a short quiz. The total estimated time to complete the course is 3.5 to 4 hours. 

The course is approved for 4 hours of continuing education for Social Work (core), LPC and LMFT (related).  

The SIGNALS course was developed through a partnership between The Georgia Department of Education, the National Alliance on Mental Illness - Georgia, the Sandra Dunagan Deal Center for Early Language and Literacy, and the Georgia State University School of Social Work Child Welfare Training Collaborative.
