We’re so excited to introduce the second keynote speaker for the 7th Annual Midwest School Mental Health Conference, Dr. Nicole Skaar! Dr. Skaar is a school psychology trainer and associate professor at the University of Northern Iowa. She is currently working on a 3-year grant-funded project with Great Prairie AEA and North Mahaska schools that aims to develop and implement a model for school-based mental health systems in rural schools.
She collaborates with administration to provide professional development for teachers and staff, and provides direct service to the students and families of the school district who otherwise are unable to secure community based psychological services. The conference will be held on Aug. 8 at the Iowa Event Center in Des Moines, Iowa. Registration includes lunch and access to all workshops & presentations and partner exhibitions.
Join hundreds of teachers, administrators, support staff, counselors, psychologists, therapists, parents, preservice college students and many more from across the midwest for the only school mental health conference in Iowa.
