No CEUs available are available for this webinar.

As the emotional toll of the pandemic deepens, schools must continue to prioritize the health and wellbeing of their students. Effective mental health management requires a holistic approach that empowers every student to address stress, anxiety and other concerns with greater connection, compassion and communication.

In this interactive and evidence-based webinar, you’ll gain practical and powerful tools to help students manage their mental health and wellbeing. Drawing on life-enhancing principles of positive psychology, you’ll learn how the three R’s – reflection, reframing and reaching out – allow students to gain perspective and control through self-guided and department-based support. Learn proven practices that create wholeness and happiness while activating the brain’s resilience-building capabilities. Adopt “right now” strategies to destigmatize mental health and provide workable solutions for students and their families.

From learning how to spot warning signs to forging closer bonds, this training offers a road map for building support channels, managing stress, boosting optimism and maintaining emotional health – creating the kind of resilient, compassionate and productive school environments where everyone thrives.
