Students — and educators — are dealing with a lot these days, including living through a global pandemic that has led to learning loss and isolation and grappling with societal and economic uncertainties. Members of your school community who lack the social-emotional skills necessary to navigate these stressors can fall further behind and express signs of depression and anxiety. We need to focus on getting both staff and students back on a path to wellness by specifically addressing their social-emotional needs.
