Mindfulness and Self-care: Library Resources to Support Students and Faculty

Self-care and social-emotional wellbeing is extremely important in order for students and teachers to be their best selves. Attendees will have hands-on experience with mindfulness techniques and curated resources will be shared. Crowd-sourced resources will be curated, as well as actionable tips to take the first steps to create a school library that is inclusive and mindful of all learners, including those struggling with self-identification, mental disorders (including depression and anxiety).
