RIDE Distance Learning Series Resource Guide for Educators
JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc., in collaboration with the Rhode Island Department of Education and the RIPRC, December, 2020
This resource guide was created to provide Rhode Island educators and counselors with behavioral health focused educational resources that can be accessed on an ongoing basis. From November through December, 2020, JSI Research & Training Institute, Inc. collaborated with the Rhode Island Department of Education and the Rhode Island Prevention Resource Center to offer a virtual learning series addressing behavioral health topics for educators. This resource guide aims to provide educators and counselors with additional opportunities to continue learning about the behavioral health topics that were addressed through the RIDE Distance Learning Series. If there is a topic that is not listed here that you feel should be, please feel free to email RIPRC@jsi.com and RIPRC staff will research the topic and have it incorporated.
We have organized resources under the following categories: Substance use (E-cigarettes, marijuana), LGBTQ safety in schools, Social-emotional learning (SEL), Mindfulness in the classroom. We hope that these resources will help you work from home more productively, take care of your mental health and well-being, help support others in doing the same, and continue learning and taking part in behavioral health-focused training opportunities available online.
You can access the Resource Guide here.
In the event of a mental health or substance use crisis, call to connect with a licensed counselor, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Bilingual support and medications to assist with recovery are available.
