Upcoming Webinar: Coming Together tips for keeping parents, schools and students connected
August 24, 2021 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
August can be a confusing month. While enjoying the final days of summer vacation – squeezing as much rest, relaxation and fun in as possible – we begin to think about returning to school. In a typical year, back-to-school shopping, classroom assignments and anticipating a new grade (or even an entirely new school) is stressful enough. After two school years marked by disruption and uncertainty, we know that the 2021-2022 is going to be unlike any other.
This webinar will focus on two topics: providing families and caregivers ways to incorporate self-care and mindfulness into their daily routines and strategies and tips to navigate change and uncertainty with the start of a new school year.
Led by the School Mental Health Resource and Training Center’s new director, Brandon Beachamp and Mental Health Association in New York State (MHANYS)’s own Deborah Faust, Director of Family Engagement & Support, participants will learn the tools and skills necessary for good mental health and wellness for themselves and for the children and youth in their lives.
Funding for the family education webinar series is provided by Mother Cabrini Health Foundation. For other family and caregiver resources, please visit: https://www.mentalhealthEDnys.org/parents/.
