Location: Online

Self Care is not selfish! Keeping your “tank full” is far more effective than refilling it from empty! Dr. Kimberely Harrell will be joining us. Pandemic related isolation, social justice concerns, and political discord have all resulted in greater awareness of mental health issues. Join us to move beyond awareness to creating practical, evidence based self care plans that both you and your students can use. Explore evidence-based practices, brainstorm in small groups, and create a personal self care plan to support mental, physical, and emotional well-being. Thus prepared, participants will be in a better position to advocate with their students to create similar self care plans.
