Join us for a panel discussion on mental health and wellness resources and solutions for students and staff. There is an urgent need for effective ways to mitigate the mental health crisis.

Educators want more resources to support mental health and wellness for their faculty, students, and families. In this edWebinar, organizations answer questions educators have about mental health and wellness. Viewers have the opportunity to learn more about these solutions and the work they are doing to help serve and support school districts.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to K-12 educators and counselors who want to learn more for their own self-care and for the mental health and wellness of their students.

This edWebinar is part of Mental Health & Wellness Week. Join us for a week of advice, resources, and solutions that address educator and student mental health and wellness.
