Mental health problems such as suicide, depression, stresses, and other related disorders affect large number of young people children and adolescence with emotional problems exhibit their impairments in varieties of ways. They may fail academically, and become antisocial, and may have poor self image. These problems can be prevented if young people's abilities of coping with stress were enhanced, and steps can be taken to identify and respond to the early signs and symptoms of mental health problems. Therefore we need to evoke a comprehensive system of our young children in our schools. So it is obvious that the teachers have an immense impact in young children mental health. They enjoy a very important position in the formation of healthy mind in them, so a training program for school personnel regarding mental health problems of children can be evolved and implemented such training could build commitment, understanding skills and attitudes that enable teachers to use curriculum effectively and confidently. Teachers who have undergone such a training programme will be effective resource person who can actively contribute to the promotion of mental health of school children. As the teachers spend most of their time with children in schools they are in better position to identify the behavioral problems of children, and are dynamic agents next to parents in their formative period. As a part of this input teachers have to be given adequate orientation in early diagnosis of the common mental health problems of children. Thus they will be a dynamic force, instrumental and indispensable to mental health team for promoting mental health and preventing mental disease, this can play a major role in the treatment and rehabilitation of the emotionally disturbed children.5 Objectives: 1) To assess the knowledge of Primary School Teachers on identification of behavioral related emotional problems among children between 6 to 10 years of age. 2) To administer the Self instructional module on identification of behavioral related emotional problems among children between 6 to 10 years of age. 3) To evaluate the effectiveness of Self instructional module on identification of behavioral related emotional problems among children between 6 to 10 years of age. 4) To associate the post test knowledge of Primary School Teachers with selected socio demographic variables. Methods: An evaluative research approach with pre experimental one group pre-test post-test design was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the STP. The study was conducted in Primary schools at Bangalore. Convenient sampling technique was used to select the samples. The tool used for the data collection was structured questionnaire schedule which comprised of 9 items on demographic data, 36 items on knowledge regarding Identification of Behavioral Related Emotional Problems.

The conceptual frame work adopted for the study was based on Dorothy Johnson's open system theory. Data gathered was analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics in terms of frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, paired 't' test, student 't' test and chi-square test. Interpretation and Conclusion: The major findings of the study were: a) Majority (42%) of teachers were in the age group of 35-45 years. b) Majorities (56%) of teachers were females, and 44% were males. c) 64% of teachers have degree with teachers training course.36% of teachers have pre-university course and teachers training course. d) 36% of the teachers in the income group of 2500 to 3500, and 20% of them in the group of 2500-3500, 32% of 5500 & above income, and 12% of them have 4500-5500 income. e) Majority (76%) of the teachers were Hindus. f) Highest number (72%) of the teachers was from nuclear family. g) 56% of teachers option for P.
