The purpose of this descriptive study was intended to explore the perceptions and attitudes of public school teachers toward their role as a promoter of mental health and well-being in the classroom. There were 30 participants in this quantitative study, 19 female and 11 male. Participants completed a self-administered questionnaire developed by the researcher. Participants were selected by snowball sampling method. All participants were current public school teachers from one particular middle school site.
There were no statistically significant differences between males and females regarding teachers' perceptions about promoting mental health in the classroom. Findings suggest participants are open to receiving further training regarding mental health in the classroom. However, results indicate participants are less likely to solicit outside support from a mental health professional on their own. Implications for social work practice and future research are discussed.
