Get ready for a transformative experience that goes beyond the ordinary! Delve into the crucial realm of youth mental health and unlock the key to enhancing your school’s climate and culture. Prepare for a day filled with dynamic presentations, riveting speakers sharing their personal journeys through mental health challenges, and engaging group discussions.
Our spotlight presentation, “Ending the Silence for Staff,” by NAMI DuPage and NAMI National, is not just a talk — it’s a game-changer. Uncover the nuances between warning signs and typical behaviors, and gain invaluable insights on approaching families of children grappling with their mental health. This evidence-based presentation is your ticket to a deeper understanding.
But that’s not all! We’re tapping into the treasure trove of knowledge from the National Council for Mental Wellbeing’s Youth Mental Health First Aid program. While we won’t be handing out certifications, we will equip you with the essential know-how to recognize when a student is struggling and offer practical ways to assist them.
And don’t worry, this isn’t your average mental health seminar – it’s an experience designed to resonate. As we wrap up the day, we’ll provide educators with indispensable information on prioritizing their well-being. Because, let’s face it, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Join us as we explore the intersection of education and mental health, leaving you inspired, informed, and ready to make a positive impact!
