Communication - Parents and Teachers as Allies in Mental Health

November 7th at 11:00 am UAC 124

Silence is one of the greatest challenges we must overcome to help students who are living with mental illness. Teachers and administrators can help – when armed with knowledge of the symptoms and empathy for parents/caregivers and the student.

What teachers and staff will learn:

  • The difference between bad behavior and symptoms of mental illness
  • Early warning signs of a student in crisis
  • How to communicate and partner with families effectively
  • Where to find additional mental health resources

Presented in partnership with the National Alliance on Mental Illness.

This workshop is intended for students seeking teacher certification. 

Space is limited. Sign up here!
