Add Your Name to the Health & Well-Being in the Schools - Exploring Trauma-Informed Schools

When:   Wednesday, May 29, 2019, 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM
Where:  Nebraska School Activities Association (NSAA)
              500 Charleston Street
              Lincoln, Nebraska
Why: A student’s experience of trauma affects every part of life – academic success, physical and mental health, ability to form relationships, social health. Those involved in school leadership can best serve schools by          learning what schools can do to help students succeed. This includes an awareness of what is needed to support schools in an effort to help students achieve health and well-being.
