We all know mental health and well-being is a critical area of need for students of all ages. Educators, families, and community health practitioners are at the front line, but nobody can do it alone! When it comes to mental health, we need to work in collaboration to provide students with the support they need, and we need to support each other. View this timely and important edWebinar to learn valuable strategies for:

  • Bringing everyone to the table to partner around student mental health
  • Tangible things you can do right away to increase the well-being of everyone in your school community—both adults and students
  • Engaging in conversations around mental health and creating a culture of care

At a time when rates of stress, anxiety, and depression among young people are rising, this is a don’t-miss event that helps you and your colleagues chart a path to effectively support mental health and help students build the skills to recognize and manage their emotions.

This recorded edWebinar is of interest to PreK-12 teachers, librarians, school and district leaders, school counselors and social workers, and those in parent/community involvement, family engagement, and school improvement roles.
