Why this event

The EdCan Network is concerned that the steep hike in reported cases of student anxiety[1] and suicidal ideation[2] is creating stress and emotional exhaustion among teachers.[3] Schools aren’t mental health treatment facilities principals and teachers cannot be expected to shoulder the entire burden.They can, however, be an important part of the solution.[4]

How can education leaders create a climate that supports well-being for all?
