Presenters will define resiliency and trauma-informed practices in the school setting and offer suggestions for supporting students’ mental health needs
According to the 2021 State of Mental Health in America report from Mental Health America, young people are struggling with their mental health, and, during the pandemic, youth ages 11-17 were more likely to score for moderate to severe symptoms of anxiety and depression. As districts look to prioritize student mental health this school year, many are left unsure about how to help students successfully.
