Presentation for University of North Dakota College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines

The Mountain Plains MHTTC, in collaboration with the University of North Dakota College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines, hosted a training session on the new toolkit Strengthening Reslience: Promoting Positive School Mental Health Among Indigenous Youth. Lavonne Fox, PhD, OTR/L, and Thomasine Heitkamp, LCSW, provided an overview of the toolkit and discussed strategies for supporting access and implementation of this product in school settings. This toolkit provides effective strategies for K-12 educators, administrators, and mental health treatment providers to use when working to increase cultural awareness of tribal history, language, and culture within the full continuum of education and behavioral health response.
