The Importance of Trauma Informed Pedagogy and Student Identity in Mental Health
Mental Health Learning Series: Join the U.S. Department of Education for a 3-part webinar series on promoting best practices, resources and understanding existing barriers to mental health services for students. A new school year has begun and the nation is facing a youth mental health crisis. This webinar series will tackle pressing issues facing the field and will highlight ways to support student mental health, increase access to services, and support the whole child. As federal resources, including the existing American Rescue Plan funds, continue to become available for states and districts to support student well-being, the Department will share best practices and lessons learned from schools, districts, and national experts, in an effort support the field to help students thrive.
This session will focus on the importance of trauma-informed pedagogy and student identity in supporting strong mental health in the school community.
