Workshops Addressing Mental Health

Students today are coming to school with many personal struggles and often school staff is not able to address their needs. School Social Workers are key in helping schools to identify and support the mental health needs of students. Workshops throughout the conference offer information on district wide mental health initiatives to school social workers collaborating for parental support:

Workshop sessions addressing Mental Health include:

A8 – Developing a Comprehensive School District Approach to Student Mental Health
