Content Warning: This session will discuss sensitive topics including suicide, self-harm, and discrimination. Before the pandemic, suicide was already the second-most leading cause of death for youth aged 10-24 ' and that's just one marker across the wide spectrum of mental health struggles. Over the last two years, those struggles have increased among students and adults alike as the pandemic has fueled isolation and anxiety. As schools have transitioned back to varying levels of 'normal,' K-12 educators have a direct line to students at risk of mental health crises. Join Anthony Showalter, Pear Deck co-founder and Director of Strategy at GoGuardian, to learn about strategies for supporting student mental health, implementing SEL strategies, and creating safer learning environments.
