Mental Health Issues in the Classroom: A Teacher Training by Dr. Lauren Cook
April 16th at 3:30pm: Dover Middle School
A significant number of youth struggle with emotional challenges, which can impact the child’s academic functioning, social skills, behavior, and overall well-being in school. It is crucial for educators to be able to identify mental health concerns, provide appropriate referrals, and implement evidence-based strategies in the classroom. This training will provide teachers with a better understanding of mental health challenges such as anxiety or depression. Participants will learn to identify risk factors, protective factors, and symptoms, as well educational strategies for helping to teach and support children with emotional problems.
This event is free and CEUs are available.
