SEL and MH Resources for Educators

Many students returning to school virtually, in-person, or through a hybrid model are experiencing heightened social-emotional and mental health challenges.

NPR, Inc. has simple yet effective resources by preeminent SEL, trauma, and mental health experts that provide evidence-based strategies to help educators address students’ needs in these unsettling times.
