Back-to-school mental health tips provided by MS mental health group

As Jackson Metro-area schools are set to resume in the coming weeks, mental health experts say mental health is vital to students’ wellbeing.

According to Thrivework, a mental health organization located in Hattiesburg that specializes in providing clinical mental health assistance, educational institutions play a pivotal role in identifying and addressing students’ mental health concerns before and during the academic school year.

Ranesha Especto is a licensed professional counselor with Thriveworks specializing in anxiety, addiction, depression and bipolar disorder (military and veterans) as well as couples and marriage counseling, individual counseling and family counseling for people ages 5 and over.

Especto said that while schools play an important role in helping recognize mental health issues among students, parents also should be aware of potential problems.
