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 presentation is intended for students pursuing teacher certification.
