Mental Health Resources for K-12 Educators During COVID-19
Apr 7, 2020
In response to the recent pandemic (COVID-19), several national organizations and associations have shared and promoted resources to assist K-12 educators. Parents, family members, school staff, and other trusted adults play a critical role in helping children make sense of what they hear and making sure that it is honest, accurate, and minimizes anxiety and fear. As part of the Mountain Plains Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC), Shawnda Schroeder of the Center for Rural Health helped create Mental Health Resources for K-12 Educators During COVID-19, which compiles all recent toolkits, guides, tip sheets, and infographics that have been developed by reputable sources to assist educators during this time.
The Mountain Plains MHTTC also has a dedicated webpage to current mental health resources related to COVID-19. The page is organized by topic and includes resources for mental health providers, housing resources, products for educators, and resources for parents among others.
