Abstract

Risk factors such as poverty, living in neighborhoods with crime, drugs, and gangs, food instability, and discrimination place students at a higher risk for school failure, dropping out, and the development of behavioral and mental problems. Despite these adversities, teachers are capable of influencing students to overcome such obstacles by creating meaningful relationships with them, using teaching strategies that support growth and learning, and engaging in professional development that connects current education and psychology theories to mental health issues. By implementing this curriculum unit into a classroom, teachers will empower students to live a healthful life and thrive academically.
