This summer we saw world-class athletes Simone Biles and Naomi Osaka take a step back from their passions due to mental health reasons. Their example of practicing self-care is one we call all follow this school year, especially since a recent study by Education Week found that half of teachers reported feeling burned out and another survey reported 51% of students are feeling more stressed. Now more than ever, student and teacher well-being is being put to the test.
With data backed by student and educator responses in a national survey, The Social Institute explores what school communities are feeling as they head back to school and the need to prioritize self-care throughout this year. During this webinar, attendees will learn:
- Mental health trends impacting students and teachers
- What schools can do proactively to support social-emotional health
- How school leaders can manage student and teacher expectations during challenging times
- Ways educators and students can practice self-care to ensure social-emotional health
