Equipping Educators To Recognize And Address Student Mental Health In The Classroom

Managing a classroom with students who have mental health issues can be very exhausting for educators… and costly for school districts.

What if there was a way to cost-effectively train teachers to be more confident in behavior management while saving valuable district resources?

Introducing The Training Program That Arms Your Educators With Everything
They Need To Support All Of Their Students

Are Student Behavioral and Mental Health Issues Affecting Your School?

The prevalence of students with mental health issues is rapidly increasing.

Are your educators struggling with the behavioral challenges directly associated with student mental health issues they are facing in the classroom?

As an administrator, you know they need training, and you’re responsible for providing them with the skills they need. You would like to offer meaningful training, but you haven’t found a simple practical solution that you can use.

You Want:

  • To support educators who are on the frontlines in dealing with the mental health crises they are facing every day in the classroom.
  • To secure a cost-effective way to efficiently train all your educators simultaneously without having to schedule your staff in one location on a given day.
  • To provide expert training from those in the field to give your educators effective strategies on shaping student behavior.
  • To easily integrate student mental health training for new hires throughout the year and keep training consistent.
  • To demonstrate to parents and Board Members that you are proactive in handling student behavior issues.

Are These The Concerns Holding You Back?

  • Don’t have time or resources in your school budget?
  • Only have so many days available during the school year?
  • So difficult to get all your educators in one place at one time?

You’re not alone.

We Understand That Teacher Training Programs Need To Meet A Wide Range Of Requirements

  • The training needs to be delivered by professionals with a high degree of experience and expertise in the subject they are offering.
  • The training must be cost-effective and easily implemented to immediately start.
  • Equip your educators with everything they need to succeed NOW — not when their classroom challenges are getting so overwhelming and students are failing.
  • Create a consistent training program for new hires and seasoned professionals.

Step-By-Step Training

The self-paced training program is divided into five of the most common mental health issues educators face in the class: Anxiety Disorders, Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD).

Each module is self-paced and features a step-by-step guide to lead educators through that program. Together, these five modules form a complete roadmap for identifying and managing the student mental health issues in the classroom.


Each module features recorded videos by Cynthia Allman and Cathleen George in which they give an overview of each mental health disorder and effective, actionable strategies for the classroom.

View at your own pace to go deeper into the student mental health issues in your classroom.

Case Studies, Educator Check-In and More

Each module comes with case studies providing insight into what behaviors look like in the classroom with examples from elementary, middle and high school students.

Throughout the training, educators also have access to Educator Check-Ins that provide a helpful reflective resource and a handy Teacher Toolbox cheat sheet to practice these strategies in the classroom.

Educators Earn Professional Development Hours

Each module includes training and classroom strategies for Anxiety Disorders, Mood Disorders, Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).

You’ll have unlimited access to the materials for one year with your paid subscription and login credentials.

During that time, you may also receive updates and additions to the material. And, with your subscription, new hires can be trained instantly.

Online Q&A Session (optional)

As the Co-Executive Director and Co-Founder of Newmark, I have over 18 years of experience training educators in the field of special education and a clear understanding of how mental health issues manifest themselves in the classroom.

Additionally, I spearhead the Newmark Teacher Training Institute which provides critical teacher training and professional development for public school teachers in the areas of children’s mental health issues and effective behavioral modification in the classrooms. I have worked hard to ensure students succeed both academically and socially in an atmosphere that holds them accountable for their own achievement, regardless of their mental health disabilities.

Newmark K-8 and Newmark High School

Newmark is the expert. Newmark K-8 and Newmark High School are state-approved, private schools located in a state-of-the-art facility in Scotch Plains, NJ. For the past 18 years, we have served students ages 5-21 who are strong academically, but live with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Mood Disorders, Anxiety Disorders, Attention Issues and other Developmental Disabilities.

Newmark has made a significant difference in the lives of students and teaching professionals with our strategies and methodologies that clearly work. We have schools that prove it.

Here’s What Participants Say

“As a BCBA in a public school district, I found the NextMark training videos to be a great resource. The videos are helpful as a supplemental way to work with teachers in getting to know their students and how their disabilities affect them in the classroom. While discussing specific students I have been able to refer teachers to points discussed in the training videos that explain why a student may be acting a certain way and what the teacher can do to support the student. Thank you NextMark!”
