Top 4 Safety Risks & How to Protect Your Students

Date of broadcast: Wed, 11/17/21

Students are still experiencing lasting impacts on their mental health from isolation during the pandemic. There is a critical need for increased mental health support for students, while acknowledging the challenges districts face with limited staff and resources to support these needs. Given the challenges, what are the top priorities district leaders should focus on?

In this webinar, you will gain insights from subject matter experts on the top four risks students are facing online—impacting their mental health, safety, and well-being—and what districts can do to help their students going forward. We are honored to be joined by a panel of speakers that includes The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, an expert child cybercrime detective, and an edtech strategist from AWS.

These experts will cover:

  • The link between unmanaged mental health and violence and the importance of early intervention
  • Examples of prevention-type programs and emerging concerns to prepare for
  • Indications of suicidal behaviors or thoughts along with self-harm prevention programs that can help
