MENTAL HEALTH IN SCHOOLS VIRTUAL CONFERENCE
October 8-9, 2020
The theme for this year’s virtual conference is “Teacher Self-Care” and it could not come at a better time. School personnel across the region are doing all they can to provide the best education for the children and families of El Paso while at the same time making sure that everyone’s health and safety are a top priority. Because of this, it has never been more important for educators to make sure they are taking care of their own mental health and wellness. The stress and anxiety of teaching children virtually, face-to-face, or a combination of the two can quickly take its toll.
Kevin Hines will give the opening keynote. Kevin is an award-winning brain/mental health and suicide prevention activist, multiple award-winning filmmaker, best-selling author, international educator and
speaker who reaches audiences with his story of an unlikely survival and his strong will to live. He will share ideas on how educators can build their own toolkit for maintaining their mental wellness, as well as the wellness of their students.
The rest of the sessions will cover different aspects of self-care that participants can begin incorporating into their own daily routines. Remember, creating a positive, safe, and healthy learning environment, whether in person or virtually, must begin with taking care of ourselves!
