(RECORDING) School Re-entry: Supporting Children’s Behavioral and Mental Health Needs
NOTE: This is the RECORDING of the Zoom session on School Re-entry: Supporting Children’s Behavioral and Mental Health Needs
Do you feel prepared to meet the mental and behavioral health needs of your students as we enter another year affected by the COVID-19 Pandemic?
The stresses, financial difficulties, loss of life, and disruption to daily life experienced by the population during the pandemic have brought forth an array of mental health concerns that School Health Professionals (SHPs) will encounter as they return to school. This and subsequent sessions in the series will deliver vital information and tools to SHPs, better preparing them to address the mental and behavioral health concerns of their individual students and whole school community.
