The Mid-America MHTTC is excited to announce the development of a new webinar, Student Mental Health During COVID-19: How to Prepare as Schools Reopen, geared toward emergency managers, public health professionals (state and local health departments) and school administrators who are working together to create school reopening and response plans.

 

The webinar will air at 11 a.m. CT on Friday, Sept. 4. Session content will focus on the mental health needs of children, adolescents and educators related to crises and how community and school organizations can partner to develop responsive plans that address these needs during the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

Attendees will have the opportunity to submit questions upon registration, enabling our MHTTC Network specialists to shape content to meet audience needs. Presenters will devote the first segment of the hour-long presentation to the topic, then address attendee-submitted questions.

 

The recording of the webinar as well as additional resources will be posted on the web page. Certificates of completion are available to viewers of 50% or more of the live webinar.

 

This webinar is brought to you by the Mid-America MHTTC in collaboration with the MHTTC Network Coordinating Office, National Center for School Mental Health, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Office of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response (ASPR) and Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH).

 

Content is tailored to address needs within our region, but all are welcome to attend. Certificates of completion will be provided to viewers of 50% or more of the live webinars.
