Mental Health Leadership Academy

This new MPER program is one means of accomplishing our goal of renewal and is a joint project with the College of Education. Two sessions are held each year with topics focusing on both student and faculty mental health issues. One of the overall goals of the academy is to provide tools for school leaders to be more effective in addressing mental health issues impacting student achievement and faculty health. MPER Partner Districts determine the best representatives to send to the sessions depending on the issue(s) being studied.
