S.O.S. for Mental Well-being: Strategies for Staff and Students in Crisis

We are under relentless pressure to do more and be more, and we’re feeling overwhelmed. This session dives right into equipping educators with three practical tools that integrate well into their daily practice. No planning. No revisiting. No guessing. They will leave feeling confident in their ability to manage their own mental health needs while effectively responding to student concerns.


Our schools are dealing with a youth mental health crisis. We are constantly putting out fires, and in order to have long-term, sustainable improvement, we need to implement a plan for immediate relief to staff and students without adding to their workload. The long-term plan focuses on prevention, though in order to find respite now, we can start building proficiency in three skills: Self-Compassion, Social Plasticity, + Relationship Reciprocity. An overview of each of these skills and a tool to easily put each of them into practice will be covered in this session. Consequently, educators will be equipped to have an immediate positive impact on their students and on their own wellness as soon as they leave this session. We need to feel hopeful that change is possible, so that is our parting gift attendees will receive.
