Show Notes

Schools have become a flashpoint in the larger debate about how we balance living our lives and keeping ourselves safe during the time of COVID-19. Schools serve as crucial bridge between families, young people, and essential services and community resources. They are also increasingly sites of mental health care. In this episode of Into the Fold we hear from Tasha Moore, Chief Strategy Officer of Communities in Schools of North Texas, which specializes in dropout prevention, and Suki Steinhauser, CEO of Communities in Schools of Central Texas, who share some wisdom about keeping kids in school at a time when ‘school’ no longer means what it used to. f0jbDLFny7qpjH6RIWox Related links: Episode 22: Restorative Discipline in Schools https://hogg.utexas.edu/into-the-fold-episode-22-restorative-discipline-in-schools Episode 42: Mental Health in Schools https://hogg.utexas.edu/podcast-mental-health-schools Improving Academic Achievement through Mental Health https://hogg.utexas.edu/initiatives/academic-achievement-mental-health Healthy Educators for Healthy Kids https://hogg.utexas.edu/what-we-do/success-stories/student-mental-health
