In recent years, children and youth across Texas and the nation have faced numerous trauma- and loss- related tragedies; from the ongoing pandemic, winter storm Uri, mass shootings, and racial injustices. In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, as we transition back-to-school, the mental health impacts will continue to present themselves. This session will provide information about screening and assessment tools and focus on the use of proven tools that can be scaled to respond to increasing needs post-COVID. Session attendees will learn about these interventions and hear real-world examples of how to address trauma and grief in schools and communities.
