Webinar: Help for Mental Health: Free Tools and Resources for Students and Staff – Feb 11

This is the first in a two-part series brought to you by the American School Health Association and The Society of State Leaders of Health and Physical Education. The second offering will go deeper into best practices for adult mental health and self-care and how to transfer those skills to students.

Students and staff are struggling. While concern for mental health is not new, the global pandemic has elevated this need to a critical level. With remote learning, students have been isolated, often unable to participate in activities that promote connection, and lacking access to resources and services necessary for their health and learning needs. School staff have had to learn new technology and teaching strategies on a dime, adjust to changing schedules, and deal with mass quarantines and a general upheaval to school operations. Even with the advent of the vaccine, dealing with the trauma and lasting effects of this time will be ongoing.

This webinar will highlight a variety of free, evidence-based tools and resources that can be implemented at the school, district, or state levels. Participants will learn how to access these resources, discover appropriate tools for different audiences, and learn about other resources available from the National Center on School Mental Health and the National Center on Safe and Supportive Learning Environments.
