By |2024-04-25T16:28:39+00:00April 25th, 2024|K-12/Charters, College/University, Social Media|0 Comments

I’m sorry to ruffle some feathers, but we’ve been doing resource directories all wrong. The intention is good, sure – put all of the resource options you know about on one page – but the execution is oh so bad. Take a look at just one example I’ve provided below: I know you know how common this type of flat directory is. You might even be thinking, “That’s the kind of directory we have at [fill in the blank]. This [...]

A man in his early thirties lacks social connection so he throws himself into his work. A young mom gives birth to her first child, but doesn’t feel love and happiness, instead she feels resentment and depression. A college student is afraid to tell her parents that she’s gay so she [...]

You’re stressed. I get it. Me too.

A Note to You During National Suicide Prevention Week

By |2021-12-29T23:40:28+00:00September 9th, 2020|K-12/Charters, College/University|0 Comments

I was 24 years old, in a Master’s of Mental Health Counseling program, and facilitating one of my first group sessions. It was an interpersonal relationship process group- you know- one of the groups used to train newbie therapists how to be in the here-and-now and learn about their quirks through interactions with others in the group? Pretty low key. At least most of the time. I loved group facilitation and especially relished in the moments when I would say something (I thought was) profound; earning myself the respect and admiration of those who were participants. I felt admired by my colleagues, supported by my professors, and would do anything I could to continue the persona of master therapist; wise beyond my years.

Now that almost all of our country's institutions and districts have gone to some form of virtual instruction and remote ways of supporting students, Case Managers, School Psychologists, and Behavioral Intervention Team (BIT) leaders have taken on a new task—identifying creative ways to check in on [...]

Some K-12 Districts are Ready to Identify Students of Concern, Others Are Not… Yet

The date was April 16, 2007. I think it was a Monday. I know it was a day that changed the landscape of student support on college campuses, forever. On this day an undergraduate student opened fire, shot, and killed 32 people and wounded 17 others on the campus of Virginia Tech. The nation was stunned. If this could happen on a college campus—where smart and capable students were focusing on bettering themselves and their futures—it could happen anywhere. In [...]
