Supporting Student Mental Health and Wellness with GoGuardian BeaconContent Warning:This session will discuss sensitive topics, including suicide, self-harm, and violence.
Suicide is the second-most leading cause of death for youth aged 10-24 according to the CDC — and that’s just one marker across the broad spectrum of mental health struggles. Over the last two years, those struggles have increased among students and adults as the pandemic has fueled isolation and anxiety.
As schools have transitioned back to varying levels of “normal,” K-12 educators have a direct line to students at risk of mental health crises, including potential threats and violence to themselves or others. Join Mary Beth Coyne and Kevin Dorsey from the GoGuardian Beacon team to learn about how GoGuardian Beacon can help schools to support student mental health and create safer learning environments.
