About the event

 The library is often a safe haven for students who are in the midst of traversing complex academic, social, and emotional worlds. Librarians have the unique opportunity to support students who face mental health challenges—and can make a huge difference in their students' lives as a result. Join our three experts—Deborah Takahashi, Kia Jane Richmond, and Anita Cellucci—in this webinar as they discuss tools and strategies to help you help your students, from bibliotherapy to building resource partnerships to integrated Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs.

Join us to learn how to:

  • Connect students with young adult literature titles that feature characters with mental illness
  • Develop partnerships to provide services and resources to serve teenagers with mental illness
  • Assist teens experiencing a crisis
  • Build SEL programming in the library, including mindfulness, trauma-informed practices, and more
