Creating a safe place for LGBT students in your school
Limited Capacity seats available

A Safe Space is a welcoming, supportive and safe environment for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) students. We know that school is not always a safe place for LGBT students. Most LGBT students frequently hear anti-LGBT language and experience harassment related to their sexual orientation and gender expression. Majority of LGBT students feel unsafe at school and are likely to skip class or even full days of school to avoid the anti-LGBT name-calling, bullying and harassment they face on a daily basis. But educators can make a big difference! For many students, simply knowing that allies exist can be a source of support. Research shows that LGBT students with many supportive educators feel safer at school, skip fewer classes, and earn higher grades than students without supportive educators.

Behind blue eyes: Supporting students with mental health disorders
Limited Capacity seats available

As the front-line mentors of students on a daily basis, and as the shapers of the environment where one-fifth of the U.S. population is found on a given school day, educators play a critical role in enhancing the mental health of students. It is not a new insight that mental health concerns must be addressed if students are to succeed at school. As educators it is our job to help ensure schools are caring and supportive places that maximize learning and well-being in order to strengthen students, families, schools, and communities. Take an inside look into one student’s heroic journey with depression and along the way learn how to provide support to students who are struggling to cope with the demands of daily life.
