Presentations and Workshops

The MHA in Niagara County, Inc. provides free presentations for grades K-12 to educate students on many mental health related topics. Our presentations take just one class period and no preparation for the school staff or administration is required. Please consider allowing us to join you in educating your students about the importance of mental health awareness through our FREE presentations and resources.

Depression and Suicide
It is an unfortunate reality that depression and suicide are on the rise. In this module students will learn about the warning signs of depression and suicide, the associated risk factors, and what they can do to help.

Conflict Resolution
Conflict is inevitable, and there are many benefits to knowing how to resolve it peacefully. In this module, students will learn how to resolve conflict by communicating clearly and working through the stages of problem solving.

Anxiety
and Stress
Management
There's no "one size fits all" solution to managing stress and anxiety. This module will help students create a stress management plan that reflects their unique needs. as they learn healthy ways to cope with stress, reduce its harmful effects, and prevent anxious feelings from spiraling out of control.

Bullying and Building Healthy
Relationships
Learning how to build healthy relationships plays a role in preventing violence. With integrated components for elementary, middle and high school, we help students build the social-emotional skills they need to treat one another with respect and dignity as they mature.

*For students in Pre-K through 2nd grade, we also offer presentations on identifying and understanding feelings, as well as how to socially express feelings in a positive manner.

Presentations can be formatted to fit each school's needs. If there is a topic you'd like discussed but it's not on our list, just ask!
