New Four-part Series for School Mental Health Professionals
Four-part series begins Tuesday, October 26!
This series will start with an introduction to Classroom WISE, a new mental health literacy course developed by the MHTTC Network and the National Center for School Mental Health. Classroom WISE is a free 3-part training package that assists K-12 educators and school personnel in supporting students' mental health in the classroom and is comprised of a free self-guided online course, video library, resource collection, and website focused on educator mental health literacy.
Many schools and districts are already addressing different aspects of school mental health by using various programs, practices and initiatives to support students. Classroom WISE was designed to integrate and enhance school mental health efforts to provide even greater assistance to students at both the prevention and intervention levels.
Following the introduction, each webinar in this series will focus on a different school mental health framework: social emotional learning, trauma-informed practices, and multi-tiered system of support. Clear examples, tips, and discussions will help illustrate the relationship between Classroom Wise and the specific SMH framework. Participants are welcome to attend the whole series or the individual sessions most aligned with your current SMH practices. This webinar series is for educators, school mental health professionals, school and district decisions makers, and administrators.
