Publication Date: Oct 04, 2021

Editors' Note: This story ran in our October newsletter, published Oct. 4.

 

Educators and school personnel are invited to join us for a free webinar from 12-1 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 5, to learn about Classroom WISE as well as our 2021-2022 Promoting Educator Mental Health Literacy: A Mid-America MHTTC Regional Learning Community.

 

Classroom WISE, or Classroom Well-Being Information and Strategies for Educators, is a free three-part training package that assists K-12 educators in supporting the mental health of students in the classroom. Developed by the Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) Network in partnership with the National Center for School Mental Health (NCSMH), the package offers evidence-based strategies and skills to engage and support students with mental health concerns in the classroom.

 

In the Oct. 5 webinar, we'll provide an overview of Classroom WISE, teach you how to access the modules, and help you prepare to apply what you learn to your work with children and adolescents.

 

Applications for the learning community are due Oct. 18. In this free training and networking opportunity, we will introduce leadership teams to the Classroom WISE content, plan for implementation and roll-out, and aid in supporting implementation for teams that have already started. Learn more and apply on the learning community website.
