#TalkoutofSchool: NYPD Intervention in student mental health crises and how to make schools more healing-centered

After a brief news recap, in today's #Talk out of School,  I spoke with Dawn Yuster, the Director of the School Justice Project for Advocates for Children, which has just released a startling report on police interventions in student mental health crises in NYC schools. 

Then I interviewed Resheeda Harris, parent leader, and Katrina Feldkamp of Bronx Legal Services, both members of the Healing-Centered Schools Task Force, composed of advocates, parents and educators who are working with schools so that they become less punitive and more healing-centered – which would help prevent these mental health crises and police interventions occurring. Listen in and check the resources for more information.  You can check out other Talk out of School podcast segments and/or subscribe here.
