Mental Hygiene Comes Back or It Never Left
by Dr. Pamela Baker*

When I was in college I took a "mental hygiene" class. You are probably wondering what in the world is "mental hygiene"?

Mental hygiene, the public-health perspective within psychiatry, was influential from 1910 until about 1960. Since World War II, mental hygiene ideas became increasingly incorporated into mainstream psychiatry, in particular through the community health movement of the 1960s. The mental hygiene, or mental health, movement thereafter ceased to exist as a separate movement. Instead of focusing on the treatment of MENTAL ILLNESS, mental hygienists emphasized early intervention, prevention, and the promotion of mental health.

Mental hygienists were interested in children because they were convinced that mental illness and mental disorder were to an important extent related to early childhood experiences. Their interest in prevention made them focus their public-health education activities on reaching parents to inform them about the latest scientific insights in child development and child rearing. Mental hygienists also viewed the educational system as a suitable location for preventive activity and became involved in programs for teacher education and educational reform". Source: Mental Hygiene Movement

I believe never has there been a time when we need to consider mental health/wellness more proactively, not only for our students but in ourselves as well.
