This webinar series brings professionals from the school mental health field to share knowledge, lived experiences, affirming practices and resources to create supportive spaces for the LGBTQIA2+ community in schools in our region. Sessions include content about understanding gender identity and language with a safe space to practice pronouns, exploring gender affirming support practices in schools for students, school communities, families and school staff as well as a session dedicated to a Q & A. In this session, the South Southwest MHTTC was joined by sociologist and University of Texas at Austin professor Dr. Stephen Russell to help set the stage and discuss some of the necessary foundations.
