Student Wellness Series: Webinars on the Mental Health Issues Impacting Today's Students


Student Wellness Series

It’s a tough time to be a student. Even before the pandemic struck, today’s students were experiencing a mental health crisis. Reports indicate that approximately 10 million individuals between the ages of 13 and 18 are in need of professional help for a mental health condition, shifting student safety efforts beyond simply protecting students in a physical sense to considering the whole child from a social and emotional standpoint.

 Join us for the remaining event in our Student Wellness Series:

  • Holiday Blues on December 9 at 1:00 PM ET: While the holiday season typically brings feelings of joy, this time of year can be difficult for many. For this final event in our series, we’ll be joined by child psychologist Dr. Lisa Strohman, Superintendent Dr. Christine Burton from Millburn Township Public Schools, and Heather Durkac, Gaggle’s VP of Operations, to discuss the mental health struggles students face during the holidays.
