Cultivating Regulation and Resilience Amid Ongoing Uncertainties and Inequities

October 7, 2021

Have you ever lived more uncertainty than during the COVID-19 pandemic? Do you wonder how our unpredictable environment is affecting your students, and want to ensure that every student feels as safe and supported as possible?

The burdens created by the pandemic have been distributed unequally across populations. School Health Professionals (SHPs) require an understanding of how trauma and barriers to essential services are disproportionately impacting certain populations. Cultivating awareness of the effects that chronic uncertainty has on students and developing a vision of equity within their school environments will assist SHPs in providing comprehensive mental health supports and create a more equitable experience for all students.

 

Target Audience

School Nurse Managers in districts receiving CSHS grant funds, School Nurses, School Psychologists, Adjustment Counselors, and anyone interested in School Mental Health
