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.
