Collab Lab 54: Student Led Collaboration to Address Youth Mental Health
Thursday April 13 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
What if students took the lead to create a culture in school where both students and educators feel safe, affirmed, and free to build the skills, knowledge, and relationships needed to pursue their passions?
The pandemic did a real number on schools. That’s reflected in the mental health concerns raised by students, and the additional strains put on teachers. There are a bunch of folks in Milwaukee doing interesting work around youth mental health and violence issues. What could happen if that support was lined up behind issues and possibilities of greatest concern students? What if this work could happen inside of the school day? Not just because it is an important challenge rife with opportunities for multi-disciplinary work that can connect schools to a broad range of resources and expertise out in the community, but because we all might learn something about what students can accomplish when given a chance to take the lead.
Join K-12 educators, students and organizations working on youth mental health and violence in Milwaukee to explore where and how we might get something started.
