According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the proportion of 12-17 years who visited an emergency rooms due to mental health crises was 31% higher from April-October 2020, than the same time period the year before. Sadly, the numbers get worse.
Edweek surveyed thousands of students to hear their voice and what was learned is even more disheartening… 37% of students stated they view themselves more negatively now than before the pandemic and the percentages were worse for older students and LGBTQ students.
Based on this information, there is no question creating students with the skills to maneuver through the obstacles and opportunities the COVID-19 Crisis has presented is an educator’s top priority. The first step in this process is ensuring students have supports in place to survive this difficult time.
Participants in this session will:
Discover the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed to enhance student mental health and well-being.
Understand how to not only implement social emotional learning throughout the school day but seamlessly embed it throughout the curriculum as well.
Leave with a 12-month Social Emotional Success Plan, encompassing tools and techniques to increase student social, emotional and academic skills that support their individual needs.
