This course is designed to increase insight and awareness pertaining to the unique mental health needs of minority student in k-12 settings. Amid the current pandemic, the mental health needs of minority students have been exacerbated. Health concerns for self and family members, financial stressors, social isolation, racism and loss of important milestones (sports activity, proms, dances and graduation) have placed an underserved population at greater risk for poor academic performance and mental stability. It is important for educators to not only recognize the warning signs of mental health problems, but also learn practical solutions for helping minority students improve stability, thereby increasing the likelihood of academic success.
By the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Identify common issues faced my minority students in k-12 settings, that may have been exacerbated by the current state of their environment.
- Gain increased awareness into recognizing warning signs of mental health concerns and gain strategies for supporting this unique population.
