The health and wellness needs of students are unprecedented, and schools are struggling to support individual needs while tending to the needs of the whole community and determining what are the most effective interventions in managing student mental health. The nuances of how schools can/should meet those needs is complicated and, at times, depleting. We will begin this webinar with a brief overview of trends in child and adolescent mental health, how we got here, and what is next. We will then focus our conversation on the role board chairs must play in ensuring the safety and well-being of their students, highlighting must-ask questions, policy needs, protocols, and budgetary considerations.
Presented by Kathy Cosgrove, Ph.D., Director of Student Support Services, Marymount School
