December 2020

December has arrived and we are excited to tell you what's new! We recognize that holiday stressors and shorter days can make for a challenging month. Our partners at New England MHTTC have an excellent toolkit on responding to Seasonal Affective Disorder in the classroom.

Our revamped School-Based Mental Health Resources page has opportunities for CEUs, archived products, webinar recordings, and a collection of external resources.

Treating the Invisible Wounds of War is an asynchronous CEU opportunity for individuals who serve the military community.

Sarah Nielsen, a Mountain Plains MHTTC technical trainer, is being honored by the American Occupational Therapy Association.

Finally, our upcoming events calendar includes several trainings throughout the entire MHTTC Network that focus on school mental health.

Be well,

The Team at Mountain Plains MHTTC
