The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center and the Pacific Southwest MHTTC are collaborating to bring you A "Think Tank" Time: A Gathering of School Mental Health Practitioners to Surface School Mental Teleheath Needs and Resources.
This event is part of The Well-Being Series - Connections During COVID-19: Mental Wellness Webinars for Families and Educators. Click here to learn more about our series of webinars for kids, parents, and educators, focusing on mental wellness and suicide prevention.
Description: For the past couple of months the Northwest and Pacific Southwest regions have been engaged in learning about the Interconnected Systems Framework - a structure and process to integrate PBIS and school mental health within school systems. This systems work is just as important now, as schools explore how to best provide school mental health, telehealth, and virtual student supports. This "think tank" workshop identifies the needs we are noticing; the resources in our field that can support those needs; and ways we can develop tools and supports to fill the gaps.
Audience: Educators, school counselors, social workers, psychologists; behavioral health agencies; student support services; state education entities; county Offices of Education; community-based organizations; technical assistance providers; field specialists, professors, thought leaders; and anyone else who would like to join.
