Promoting Student Mental Health
Mental health includes our psychological, emotional, and social well-being. It affects how we feel, think and act when we interact with others. This webinar will introduce school staff to the concept of mental health as a continuum of wellness with special attention to the impact of traumatic experiences, including loss, homelessness, poverty, abuse, and neglect.
At the end of the webinar, participants will:
Learn about youth mental health, including prevalence, risk, and protective factors, and signs and symptoms of mental health disorders.
Explore common misunderstandings and stigma through engaging in activities and small-group discussions.
Identify strategies to promote student mental health in school.
Practice staff wellness strategies for managing stress at home and in the workplace.
