Teachers are essential specialists in helping children and adolescents who display social, emotional, or behavioural difficulties in the classroom and may have mental health issues. Teachers are increasingly being viewed as crucial connectors of young people in need of mental health assistance in health and education policy. However, a rising body of research raises concerns about practitioners' ability to fulfil this crucial role, especially in light of the scant attention paid to mental health-related material in pre-service teacher preparation. The results of a qualitative case study that was conducted in an Australian setting and looked at pre-service teachers' reactions to five vignettes of young people exhibiting behaviours suggestive of potential mental health issues are presented in this work. This study demonstrates the necessity for training in order for educators to recognise and effectively address mental health challenges.
