Children and teens nationally are struggling with increasing rates of anxiety and depression that adversely impact a large proportion of youth. We strive to partner and share effective insights within our community to strengthen our school-based systems of care and ultimately reverse these trends to increase student health and wellness.
In 2018, we introduced our annual speaker series, “LBUSD Presents,” featuring keynote speakers that positively impact our students, school culture and climate. On November 1, sponsored by SchoolPower, we will welcome Lynn Lyons, a national-level speaker and subject-matter expert in understanding and intervening with children and youth experiencing anxiety and other mental health conditions. Parents, caregivers and students in grades 6 - 12 are invited to attend.
