Pathways to Inclusion: Addressing the Mental Health Needs of Students Across the Age Span

Featuring AUCD/CDC's Children's Mental Health Champions, this 90-minute webinar will be to identify specific strategies that address the mental health needs of students across the age span, including the needs of neurodiverse learners. Mental health challenges can be a barrier to inclusion and addressing these challenges can enhance opportunities for participation in educational activities. Our four presenters will touch on topics such as the impact of early stressors on the mental health of young children (preschoolers), working with school providers to address the social/emotional needs of underserved children (early elementary age) post-pandemic, and supporting school personnel to address the mental health needs of neurodiverse learners, with a focus on autistic students (school-aged) with anxiety. The final presentation will focus on supporting transition for adolescents with emotional/behavioral challenges through an introduction to the RENEW Model. This webinar is recommended for K-12 educators, including administrators, school specialists, mental health personnel, community mental health providers, and family members.

Warning Signs of Suicide and Crisis Supports for Autistic People

Suicide is a leading cause of death in autistic people. Autistic people have significantly higher rates of suicidal thoughts, suicidal behaviors, and deaths by suicide than the general public. Warning signs of imminent suicidal behavior in the general public do not represent the unique needs of the autism community. Misunderstanding a suicide warning sign in an autistic individual can have devastating consequences. The presenters will describe warning signs of suicide for autistic people based on the latest research findings and expert consensus. They will also share information about crisis supports for this population.
