Supporting children and youth with high emotional and behavioral needs is often lonely, overwhelming, complex, and not well-understood. As a caregiver, how do you navigate school services, child welfare, and other involved systems to get the support you need for your child? As school providers, how might we learn with families through their advocacy journeys?
In this recorded webinar, participants came together to listen and learn from family advocates and colleagues in the field to deepen their practice, student-center their services, and make this work less lonely and more connected. Parents, caregivers, providers, educators, and all members of the school community were invited to join and strategize how to support each other while supporting students with emotional and behavioral health needs.
