What Mental Health Is...
Mental health exists on a continuum, it's intimately linked to our physical health and well-being and something we all need to look after.

It's Not Fake News
The mental health issues created and exacerbated by the Covid 19 pandemic are real and, as teachers, we need to take care of ourselves first, before we try to help the kids in our care.

Welcome To The Show
Educators need to spend the next several months looking beyond the need to make the building safe for teachers and students. Strong leaders are needed to help schools stay focused on the basic emotional needs of staff and students to make sure they know that it is more about them than their test scores. Finally, we all need to recognize & acknowledge that the entire world is experiencing historical and collective trauma. To think that we can return to the academic-focused culture of schools without making mental health a priority is sheer folly. Students and teachers alike will need social-emotional support as we transition to life after COVID 19 and establish a new ‘normal’ in society. Join us for a lively, interactive discussion about the things that are most important as we continue to work our way through 19 and re-define education going forward.
