Are you a school [instructional] leader who wants to learn about school mental health, or a mental health provider who wants to learn about the contexts of schools and student learning outcomes? Often, the conversations between educators and mental health providers are siloed and separated. This session provides a platform to bridge the conversation so that both perspectives can learn from one another to better support the students they serve. Together we will explore common mental health issues among students (k-16) and their potential effects on learning outcomes; the relationship between socio-emotional development, student learning, and academic success; an introduction to mental health in the classroom and school, including barriers to help-seeking and provision; and how to enhance our role as supportive adults for students with mental health and emotional challenges and strengths.
