Diagnostic Center North: For Teachers - Creating a Safe and Supportive Learning Environment: Implementing Environmental Based Strategies to address Students Struggling with Mental Health Concerns at the Tier 1 and 2 Levels

Supporting the mental health needs of students in the classroom is becoming an increasingly important component of providing comprehensive education. This training will describe specific environmental supports that increase students' ability to access learning in the classroom by designing a safe and supportive environment. Additionally, specific mental health conditions and how they present in the classroom through an educator's lens will be reviewed. Participants will discuss how to recognize academic and behavioral symptoms and how to preventatively and proactively implement supports prior to student distress.

    Participants will:
    • Receive clarity about what is included in Tier 1/ Universal social emotional supports from a teacher perspective.(UDL).
    • Explore how to integrate environmental mental health/social emotional supports and practices into the classroom instruction.
    • Work with colleagues to select specific strategies that they can implement in their classrooms.
    • Learn how mental health issues present in the learning environment.
    • Explore how to match educational and behavioral supports and accommodations to student needs when considering mental health concerns.
