Webinar: A compassionate school approach to children's mental health: Equity, justice, and overcoming disparities

This webinar will review current trends in children’s mental health (particularly with rural and low-income populations and students of color) and explore why youth suicide and mental illness are on the rise. We will discuss cultural, racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic factors and how they impact prevention and treatment options, with recommendations for how to improve equity. We also will explore restorative justice and case studies of effective solutions.
