Description

The focus in education has zeroed in on student mental health issues and what mindfulness can do in the classroom, but the topic of educator mental health and social-emotional support still remains taboo. This session discusses educator mental health, engagement and disengagement, how it happens, and the impact it has on both the educator and the system. The session also addresses factors in the classroom that can affect mental health and disengage like burnout and secondary traumatic stress. Finally, how we can destigmatize mental health issues, build resilience, practice self-care, and create a culture of understanding.
