This pandemic has heightened the national focus on mental health and how we must show up for our youth during these challenging times. In this session, one team of mental health professionals will share their story on how the pandemic impacted the students in Lennox School District, and how the district mental health team created and designed new supports and resources for a 6 week SEL focus when students returned to campus in April, 2021. In addition, as the 21-22 school year is ahead, this panel will discuss the ways in which they will increase support, teacher professional development, and a multi-tiered support system that will focus on the impact of trauma on learning, and how all staff can support students with positive strategies and tools for support.
