Thu, March 9, 2023
10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. ET
About Our Event
Looking for best practices on ways to advocate for and collaborate around school mental health supports? Learn more about strategies that empower and engage all members of your school community to use their voice to advocate for policies in districts, schools, and programs that support inclusion and the implementation of effective social, emotional, and behavioral health practices.
In this panel discussion, leaders in education, behavioral health, and corporate and nonprofit fundraising and communications will share real life learnings around ways to engage stakeholders, turn naysayers into allies, and help everyone in the school community to better advocate for policies and programs in schools/districts that foster respect, promote equity, and improve the resilience of students and staff so that they can lead more productive and healthier lives.
One hour of CE credit is available to session participants.
