NEWS & UPDATES


Members of the Mid-America MHTTC gathered in New Orleans, LA, for the Annual Conference on Advancing School Mental Health in early December.


Our time at the conference kicked off with a pre-conference session gathering Project AWARE grantees together. We were so excited to see the Region 7 grantees from across Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri!


At the conference, our team was hard at work at our booth and in breakout rooms. Our team members presented in sessions like "Empowering Educators: A Train the Trainer Approach on School Mental Health Literacy" and "Harnessing the Power of Partnerships to Expand the School Mental Health Workforce through Pre-and In-service Training."
