Sign up for the next Barbara Gay Lecture – Windows & Black Mirrors: Youth Suicide and Technology. The event is an ongoing partnership between Metro Nashville Public Schools and Vanderbilt University Medical Center’s Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. The event is supported by and complements the goals of the Behavioral Health and Music City SEL Conference A-Teams; Alignment Nashville’s Vice President Heather Chalos serves as a member of the planning committee.
Featuring Dr. Jonathan B. Singer, PhD, LCSW, professor at Loyola University’s Chicago School of Social Work and Past-President of the American Association of Suicidology, this year's Barbara Gay Lecture will translate the most important research on technology and suicide risk into practical tips for parents and professionals, discuss how to identify and intervene with youth suicide risk online, and address the ways that technologies can be used to exacerbate or address structural inequities.

Join MNPS, Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and other community partners on February 27, 2023 at Martin Professional Development Center for the 11th Annual Barbara Gay Lecture! Register here.

Alignment Nashville invites you to join us for a Coffee Talk focused on school culture and climate on Tuesday, January 31!

The culture and climate of a school impact more than students' abilities to learn and grow – it impacts families, parents, teachers, staff, and other members of every school community. During this Coffee Talk, guests will be able to share their perspectives and hear from others regarding community issues that impact schools and discuss the role that community plays in supporting MNPS' efforts to improve the culture and climate of Nashville schools.

RSVP for the School Culture and Climate Coffee Talk, 9:00 to 10:00am in the MNPS Board Room!
