Drop-In and General SupportEvery Saturday
Mental Health in the Classroom – Ali Schroer, LCSW, will lead you through ways to identify and support students who may be struggling in the classroom. She will address different mental health issues, different developmental stages, and suggestions for interventions with the individual student or in the classroom as a whole. There will be time for questions and support from Ali and your peers.
Sleep, Support, and Stress – Notice stress impacting your sleep? Dr. Dana Steidtmann will work with you to help you find ways to get to manage your stress, take care of your body, and get better sleep.
Burnout Management – Join Dr. Dana Steidtmann to talk further about all things burnout. What is it? How do we manage it? What are related factors, such as compassion fatigue, secondary trauma, and system issues. What strategies do we have to manage it? And if you decide to leave, what other options might you have? The group will have some information/education but will also have time for questions and general support from Dr. Steidtmann and your peers.
Anxiety Management: Dr. Scott Cypers will facilitate this once a month group to review anxiety management skills, but also to simply provide an open forum for questions about all things mental health related. This monthly workshop will give you some basic tips/techniques and give you a chance to talk through school year stresses.
What’s on your mind? Drop-in and General Support – Dr. Amy Lopez and staff from the well-being support line will be available to talk about whatever may be on your mind. Use this time to connect with other educators and share ideas, to ask specific questions about mental health topics, to find resources for your students or yourself, or just hang out with others who get it. Time is not fixed, you can drop-in any time between 9:30 and 11.
