Mental Health Series for Educators

June 05, 2019


9:00 AM - 12:30 PM
safeTALK: Suicide Awareness for Everyone
This session meets state requirements for suicide education.  

safeTALK is a half-day alertness training that prepares anyone 15 or older, regardless of prior experience or training, to become a suicide-alert helper. Most people with thoughts of suicide don’t truly want to die, but are struggling with the pain in their lives. Through their words and actions, they invite help to stay alive. safeTALK-trained helpers can recognize these invitations and take action by connecting them with life-saving intervention resources, such as caregivers trained in ASIST.  

Workshops are offered at NO CHARGE due to funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

WRAP Seminar 1: Wellness and Recovery Action Planning

Teachers who wish to become WRAP facilitators need to complete WRAP SEMINAR 1 prior to taking the WRAP Seminar 2 Facilitator Course.

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP®) is a personalized wellness and recovery system born out of and rooted in the principle of self-determination. WRAP® is a wellness and recovery approach that helps people to: 1) decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and behaviors; 2) increase personal empowerment; 3) improve quality of life; and 4) achieve their own life goals and dreams. Working with a WRAP® can help individuals to monitor uncomfortable and distressing feelings and behaviors and, through planned responses, reduce, modify, or eliminate those feelings. WRAP® participants create a personalized recovery system of wellness tools and action plans to achieve a self-directed wellness vision despite life’s daily challenges.

Successful completion of this course fulfills the prerequisites for being trained as a WRAP Facilitator

WRAP Seminar 2 Facilitator Course.

Become a WRAP Facilitator to lead students to develop their own self-regulation and crisis management as listed above. WRAP promotes self-advocacy and all IDOE SEL Learning Competencies 

IDOE SEL Competencies and WRAP: 1) Mindset: By creating a WRAP plan, participants build perseverance, adaptability, self-discovery, and resilience. This plan also helps them develop the critical thinking skills necessary to make constructive choices. 2) Critical Thinking: WRAP is conducted as a group which increases positive communication and conflict management skills. 3) Regulation: Participants will work towards identifying emotions and how they affect their thoughts and behaviors. 4) Insight: WRAP helps build self-confidence, self-esteem, and empathy. 5) Connection and Collaboration: Developing a WRAP plan in a group setting allows participants to understand the perspective of others and empathize with persons of diverse backgrounds. 6) Sensory-Motor Integration: WRAP helps participants understand the connection between mind and body by identifying triggers and how they influence emotion and physical responses. In addition to identifying triggers, participants develop wellness tools to increase positive self-control and self-discipline. 

Workshops are offered at NO CHARGE due to funding from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
