Student Mental Health: What schools are (or should be) doing this year

Student Mental Health: What schools are (or should be) doing this year

Now — as a new school year begins — Chalkbeat Newark and New York are gathering an expert panel, including Kevin Dahill-Fuchel, Executive Director of Counseling In Schools, and Dyanand Sugrim, principal of Heritage High School, to help answer: What should change about the way schools approach mental health, given the last year?

Chalkbeat has heard from 275 parents, students, and teachers — and their sobering responses have helped to guide the work found in their series “Pandemic 360,” which chronicled the intersection of the pandemic’s lasting impact in two neighborhoods in New York and Newark in partnership with Univision 41.

Join us August 24, 4-5 p.m. ET on Zoom Webinar to hear directly from students, educators, school leaders, and Counseling in Schools. RSVP here to save your virtual seat and to tell us what questions you hope this panel will answer.
