Although the pandemic may be receding, another wave is now washing over us: skyrocketing mental health concerns. But what is typical childhood behavior? When should I be concerned? And if a student does begin to experience a mental health issue, what can I do? In this interactive workshop, participants learn about signs and symptoms of mental health concerns in youth and 3 strategies for helping students who may be developing mental health issues. Presented in collaboration with Janet Pozmantier, Consultant.
After attending this workshop, participants will be able to:
- Distinguish between typical childhood behavior and symptoms of a possible mental health concern
- Identify signs and symptoms of mental health concerns in youth
- Discuss strategies to seek help for a student who may need mental health support
- Express confidence in their understanding of student mental health
