Mental Health: Beyond Self-Care
Studies have shown that when students are keenly aware of the tools to take care of their mental health, they have better energy levels, concentration, optimism, and stronger mental ability. But it's not a surprise that in our current circumstances, our students are more isolated than ever and they're expressing greater hopelessness about their future. Although many classroom settings have changed drastically in recent months, we know students will continue to bring these feelings with them into our classrooms.
By providing students with tools to better understand their mental health, taking proactive steps to reduce stigma, and creating space and parameters for navigating difficult conversations, educators have the power to positively impact the well-being of their students.
In this webinar, we'll explore the role of community health in supporting educators & students, the changing landscape of school supports, and how to be a mental health advocate for students. You’ll gain key resources, skills, and tools to help feel more prepared in identifying and helping at-risk youth, as well as strategies for supporting students in this remote age. Join experts Dr. Frank Drummond, National Medical Director of Behavioral Health Services at HCA Healthcare, Clark Flatt, President of the Jason Foundation, and researchers from EVERFI, to learn more about the latest research, lessons learned from the classroom, and resources you can use to make a high impact on your student community. Attendees will receive:
- A certificate for 1 hour of professional development
- Free, turn-key digital lessons, supplemental activities, and offline lesson plans
- Access to digital resources and ongoing training and support
