On October 18th, the NH Association of Special Education Administrators, the NH Association of School Psychologists and NH Association of School Principals are gathering critical partners from across the state to take a deep look into the anxiety and mental health crisis in New Hampshire and Nationwide. This will be a convening of educators, mental health professionals, policy makers, advocacy groups, parents, and others to view the movie Anxious Nation and participate in a facilitated discussion on implications for NH, addressing the crisis and important next steps. This event is not just a viewing of Anxious Nation.
There will be an opportunity to dig deeper into understanding the wave of anxiety and mental health challenges that has hit NH’s children, youth, and their families. Most importantly, the intent is to leave the screening with some potential action steps and what we can do as collective stakeholders to address the challenge. For school administrators registering for this event, it is strongly suggested that they come with a team from their educational community and include a mental health professional.
