John Adams Social Worker Awarded 'Typical or Troubled' School Mental Health Grant

Toni Sanchez-Romero will lead a group of professionals in training school personnel to identify teenage behavior as typical or a warning sign of mental health issues.

Toni Sanchez-Romero, LISW clinical school social worker at John Adams Middle School, has been selected as a grant recipient for the "Typical or Troubled?" school mental health education program to be implemented within eight middle school sites of the Albuquerque Public School district.

The "Typical or Troubled?" education program is a research-based school mental health education program which was created as a response to the Columbine High School shooting in 1999 by the American Psychiatric Foundation. The program is designed to educate all school personnel working closely with adolescents to identify if teenage behavior is typical, or if warning signs of a mental health issue are present and would benefit from interventions.

The program will be implemented in cooperation with the APS Counseling Department, the APS Grant Management Office and health and wellness team members throughout the APS district.

The eight middle schools that will participate in the grant include John Adams, Harrison, Jimmy Carter, Truman, Van Buren, James Monroe, Lyndon B. Johnson, and Desert Ridge.
