Student Wellness Series

It’s a tough time to be a student. Even before the pandemic struck, today’s students were experiencing a mental health crisis. Reports indicate that approximately 10 million individuals between the ages of 13 and 18 are in need of professional help for a mental health condition, shifting student safety efforts beyond simply protecting students in a physical sense to considering the whole child from a social and emotional standpoint.

This fall, we’ll be hosting a series of webinars focused on a variety of topics impacting today’s students. Join us for one (or all!) of the events in our Student Wellness Series to hear from experts about these important issues. 

  • Eating Disorders on October 13 at 4:00 PM ET: These complex conditions, which can seriously impact students’ mental and physical health, often require both medical and psychological intervention. For our first event, we’ll be joined by Dr. Lisa Strohman, an expert on student mental health and the founder of Digital Citizen Academy.

  • Incels on October 20 at 1:00 PM ET: Involuntary celibates, or incels, are a subculture of dangerous men who blame women and society for their lack of romantic success. Focused on male supremacy, incels are increasingly becoming considered as a terrorism threat. Bruno Dias, the director of safety and security at Mansfield Independent School District in Texas, will join us to lend his expertise on this disturbing topic. 
  • Cutting on November 17 at 1:00 PM ET: Students suffering from depression and anxiety may turn to cutting, a form of self-harm, as a way to release their pain and emotions. Join us as Dr. Strohman returns for the final installment of our Student Wellness Series. 

 We invite you to join us for as many of these events as you would like to attend!

Today's Digital Learners: Keeping Kids Safe

Aces are good in cards, but not for students. The presence of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) in students is known to harm children’s developing brains, which can negatively affect how they respond to stress and lead to long-term physical and mental health issues.

As a result of this pandemic, situational trauma is impacting today’s learners and exacerbating the effects associated with ACEs more than ever. Join us on October 16 at 10:00 AM MT for an interactive discussion with Paul Zimmerman, Technology Innovation Specialist at Blaine County School District, to learn how this district is keeping students safe during this time of unprecedented instructional styles and bouts of prolonged isolation. We will discuss best practices with student safety and remote learning security with school-issued devices.

We would love your participation as we walk through the considerations for changing the face of schools in the coming year.
