Indianapolis Public Schools is offering parents and caregivers support for the “mind, body and soul” during the pandemic. A free 45-minute webinar set for 4 p.m. Monday will focus on what parents can do for their own mental-health and to take care of themselves.

IPS Superintendent Aleesia Johnson says the virtual conference will offer strategies and tips.

“We are all navigating challenging circumstances in uncertain times, and so it is so important that we are doing our best to take care of ourselves,” she said in a message to families this weekend.

The interactive webinar includes a question and answer session. Presenters include: Ike Curry, an IPS social and emotional learning specialist; Andrea Summers-Cotton, an IPS mental health wellness specialist; and Jill Hunsberger, Sandra Eskenazi Mental Health’s clinical program coordinator.

Pre-registration is required to take part in the IPS Parent Institute, Lesson 1: Self-Care Tips.
