The Impact of the Mental Health Crisis in Schools

Monday, January 28, 2018 | Cafe la Cave, 2777 Mannheim Road, Des Plaines

Cocktail Reception: 5:30 P.M. | Dinner & Program: 6:30 - 8:30 P.M.

 

Please join us for ED-RED’s 48th Annual Legislative Dinner on Monday, January 28th beginning at 6:30 pm at Cafe la Cave in Des Plaines, with cocktail reception beginning at 5:30 pm.  

 

This year’s program will feature a legislative discussion with key members of Governor-elect J.B. Pritzker’s transition committees:  Senate Education Committee Chairwoman Senator Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, House Elementary and Secondary Education Curriculum and Policies Committee Chairman Representative Fred Crespo, House Mental Health Committee Chairwoman Representative Deb Conroy, and House Elementary and Secondary Education Curriculum and Policies Committee Member, Representative Steven Reick.  This impressive group of legislators will discuss the much anticipated legislative proposals around student and teacher mental health for next legislative session.

 

ED-RED is also excited to partner with Dr. Colleen Cicchetti, Executive Director of the Center for Childhood Resilience at Anne & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago to focus on the connection between the current mental health crisis and how it impacts every aspect of student life, including increased likelihood of problems with chronic absence, student behavior issues, and low academic performance.  Dr. Cicchetti’s work includes assisting school districts all across Chicagoland in developing trauma-informed practices to benefit students who have experienced various forms of trauma, including gun-related violence, difficult immigration or refugee experiences, bullying and those impacted by the opioid epidemic.    

 

We hope you can join us!
