Academic success to support behavioral and mental health

Gabrielle Wilcox, associate professor of school and applied child psychology at the University of Calgary, and a former school psychologist, speaks about the link between mental health and academic achievement in children. Wilcox recently wrote on the subject in an article appearing in The Conversation.

Wilcox says that we can’t separate supporting kids’ success in school when looking to support their mental health.

“I think the research really supports that it’s a ‘both and,'” she said.
