About the webinar:

This presentation will discuss mental health practices to support students, as well as a bit on self-care for educators in order to support students more effectively. It will give practical examples, supported by research, to help educators understand their student's mental state and set them up for success. Help reduce stress, anxiety, and negative behaviour while supporting both the mental health and well-being of unique and diverse students.

These practical skills and strategies will be beneficial for the mainstream classroom environment and the small class environment to reach our Tier 1, 2 and 3 students respectively. This presentation will help educators create a more inclusive environment for all students.
