Mental Health and How It Impacts Education

This session focuses on mental health issues that affect students and learning, particularly the impact of trauma. Participants discuss the psychosocial barriers students are facing and how trauma left untreated can have a negative impact on students’ emotional and social development. Participants advance their knowledge of how trauma affects learning, how to work with trauma-impacted students, ways to eliminate barriers to mental health treatment access, and leave able to articulate protective factors.
