The Importance of Men's Mental Health

Six million men are affected by depression in the United States every single year. Men die by suicide at a rate four times higher than women. The Importance of Men's Mental Health will look at stigma rooted in several factors such as myths about mental health, social norms, self-perception and cultural beliefs. These stigmas can make it harder for men to access the help they need as they struggle to verbalize their feelings, coupled with the ingrained belief that they should “man up” and deal with it themselves. This workshop will take a deep dive into these issues, provide a safe environment to openly discuss, and offer strategies to combat stigma and get the help that's needed.

The Impact of Trauma on Schools: Creating a More Sensitive School Environment

Traumatic events that students may face at school, in their families, and communities come in many forms. By integrating principles of trauma-informed care into classroom practices and responding to one's own needs for self-care, schools learn how to be proactive rather than reactive and incorporate the 3 R's: realize, recognize, and respond appropriately to behaviors through a trauma lens. This workshop will provide an overview of the ways a school community can begin to establish a Trauma Informed School.
