A Focus on Educator Mental Health
60 Minute Virtual Session
Learning Pathway: Mental Health
The focus in education has zeroed in on student mental health issues and what mindfulness can do in the classroom, but the topic of teacher mental health and social-emotional support for educators still remains taboo. This session discusses the importance of doing body scans and watching for mental health issues that can lead to engagement, and areas of educator support that can complete a trauma-informed system. Finally, how we can destigmatize mental health issues, build resilience, practice self-care, and create a culture of understanding.
