Webinar: Mental Health Advocacy for LGBTQ Youth
This Mental Health Awareness Month, join GLSEN for a free live webinar where we will report on the research findings from Supporting Safe and healthy Schools, which overviews the work of school-based mental health professionals’ – counselors, psychologists, and social workers – to support LGBTQ youth, and calls attention to the need for more LGBTQ-specific preparation
We are only beginning to understand the mental-health effects related to the rapid switch to online learning during COVID-19. GLSEN’s Education Manager, Becca Mui, will moderate a panel discussion with school-based mental health providers and LGBTQ students. The panelists will discuss their experiences with distance schooling and potential challenges to mental health, describe their school-based advocacy efforts, and share best practices.
