UW SMART Series Session 2: Leading for Well-Being Using: MTSS to Build a Culture of Wellness for All

The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center School Mental Health Team will be presenting at the first Virtual AWSP & WASA Conference 2021!

When: June 21st (2:00pm - 4:00pm)

Session Description: 

Schools have increasingly invested in MTSS to address the academic and social-emotional-behavioral (SEB) needs of all students. This session will focus on wellness practices and developing a habit of wellness for educational leaders. We will also discuss how school leaders can organize, align and allocate resources to create a culture of health and wellness within an MTSS Framework by making shifts in strategy to focus on universal prevention to promote wellness for all, collaboration through establishing a system of support for staff, and data use in decision making to identify protective factors and supports.
