Articles will be sent as prereads in advance.

Join us for a two-part Speaker Series with Ayana Malone of the Onyx Therapy Group to better understand how COVID-19 and the racial reckoning are impacting the mental health of students and staff. These sessions are designed to raise awareness of how the past five months represent a collective trauma and how the ‘parallel pandemics’ will affect how students and staff present for learning in the fall. Onyx will lead participants through guided discussions and exercises on how to build a comprehensive plan for supporting mental health/wellness in schools.
Audience: APs, Principals, Principal Managers and other school people managers
Timing: August 20th (supporting staff) and September 16th (supporting students) from 3:00-4:30pm RSVP here
