More than 140,000 children have lost a parent or caregiver to COVID. 54% of 11- to 17-year-olds report frequent suicidal thoughts or self-harm in the previous two weeks. And 29% of high school students have a parent or adult in the home who has lost their job.

Day in and day out, educators are supporting the real students behind these statistics. As you look ahead to aligning resources and programming for the 2022–23 school year, student mental health is undoubtedly a priority. Social-emotional behavior (SEB) assessment data, both from this school year and fall screening, will help you identify and effectively address individual student and district- and school-wide mental health needs.

During this edWebinar, two leaders in the field of SEB assessment provide guidance on leveraging SEB data to:

  • Address the increasing rates of anxiety, depression, stress, and other mental health issues by integrating appropriate mental health supports in both Tier 1 and Tier 2 of your MTSS
  • Determine whether students require mental health services, social-emotional supports, or both
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of your social-emotional learning (SEL) programs and initiatives and where additional SEL instruction or intervention is needed to help students cope with mental health issues
  • Identify the role of implicit biases to address inequities in services, supports, and instruction

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn how to use SEB data to make informed, impactful decisions about programming, services, and placement that will set students up for success in 2022–23. This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, school and district leaders, school counselors, and school psychologists.
