"With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts."

-Eleanor Roosevelt


The MHTTC K-12 program is offering free training sessions throughout the Covid-19 Pandemic to support education programs in Tribal Communities. Not only has the pandemic stressed our healthcare and educational systems, but it has exacerbated the effects of historical trauma. Our MHTTC K - 12 program hopes to offer support, resiliency tools, and connections that are relevant and supportive as Native American communities remain resilient.

2:00-3:30 pm Central Standard Time


MHTTC K - 12 programs will continue to support our Native school communities throughout this pandemic. We will continue to offer training for the entire school community (students, parents, teachers, counselors, and principals). This training will be bi-monthly, covering topics important to you as we finish out this storm together. Each session will include a special guest speaker, key topic information, resources, and discussion with our participants.



Examples of upcoming topics:

Inequalities in Education Caused by Covid-19

Trauma-Related to Covid-19

The need for increased broadband infrastructure to endure access to technology in Native communities

The need for family and community outreach because of Covid-19
