In honor of Teacher Appreciation Week and Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute will be hosting a free virtual screening and panel discussion of A Trusted Space: Redirecting Grief to Growth on Monday, May 3, 2021 from 4-5:30 p.m. CT

Documentary Screening & Panel Discussion

A Trusted Space

A Trusted Space: Redirecting Grief to Growth is a documentary film and curriculum for educators, counselors, school administrators, parents, and others on how to mitigate the effects of grief, trauma, anxiety, and other emotional stressors that have impacted both students and teachers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The film features leading experts in trauma-informed education and is designed to help educators better understand the complex issues and feelings that they and their students are coping with, and to provide strategies to redirect grief into growth by building a safe and trusted emotional space – ultimately creating a better environment for learning and inspiring more resilient students.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring distinguished Texas education leaders. The event will be recorded and made available for later viewing.

Registration will be open until midnight on Sunday, May 2.
