The Children's Trust Announces
Saturday is SEL Awareness Day!
The Children's Trust's first ever Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Awareness Day is designed for all staff that works in the after-school programs space to identify children who might be experiencing mental health challenges and how best to respond. SEL development - the process through which children understand and manage their emotions - is critical to healthy growth and The Children's Trust is showing its dedication to this crucial part of their development by holding this day-long event FREE of charge this Saturday, November 2. There is no cost to register for the event.

The event includes a morning session with speakers followed by breakout sessions in the afternoon focusing on adverse childhood experiences (ACES), responding to mental health crisis and the National Alliance on Mental Illness' Ending the Silence program.

As well as an entire day of learning and sharing, SEL Awareness Day also includes breakfast and lunch, and a Smart TV and Target Gift Card give away!

Speakers include:
  • Demian Laudisio, Coordinator/trainer for the SAMHSA Mental Health Awareness Training at Jewish Community Services of South Florida 
  • Dr. Nicole Fava, Assistant Professor in the School of Social Work at FIU
  • Sarah Troya, Program Coordinator for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy at the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work at FIU

The event will be held at the United Way, 3250 SW 3 Ave., Miami, FL 33129.
