New primetime IASB webinar to focus on student mental health

IASB will be hosting a newly created webinar focused on the importance of mental health and well-being policies and practices for students. Glenn “Max” McGee, a former Illinois state superintendent, author, and nationally recognized speaker on the topics of student mental health, educational leadership, and public policy will be presenting the one-hour learning opportunity.
The April 25 webinar will be held at a new time, 7 p.m.

Titled, “From Distress to Success: Policies and Practices to Foster Student Mental Health and Well-Being,” McGee will explore existing beliefs about students’ mental health, examine “distressors” students are faced with, and propose changes in policies and practices that act to support student mental health.

The free webinar will take place April 25 at 7 p.m
. Past webinars on topics ranging from school funding and educational equity to pensions and policy updates are available through IASB’s Online Learning Center archive free of charge.
