JMS has something to "TWEET" About:



What's "APP"ening at JMS

JMS will be offering a free mental health screening for all students during 8th grade Health class in October and February.  This screening, called the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire (SDQ), is a brief screening that assesses student’s emotions and behaviors.  Students are encouraged to participate who are not currently receiving mental health care.  A letter explaining the screening and a consent form was sent home in the 8th grade enrollment packets.  Parent consent is required for your child to take this screening.  Please return the form to the student services office. The letter and consent is available online at our school web page.  If you would like further information, visit www.sdqinfo.com

Screening can help identify if a child is depressed, having difficulties, or suffering from an undiagnosed mental illnesses.  More than one million teens suffer from depression, yet less than one-third of those teens receive help.  Teen depression is linked to poor academic achievement, absenteeism, strained peer relationships, and substance abuse.  Studies show that 80 percent of youth do not receive the services they need for mental illness.  Please sign up for the SDQ screening to take proactive measures in getting your teen the help they need.  Contact School Counselors Lisa Boge or Erica Stablum, at Lisa.Boge@johnston.k12.ia.us  and Erica.Stablum@johnston.k12.ia.us if you have questions.
