2017 TASH Conference has ended

Each year, the TASH Conference brings together a diverse community of stakeholders who gain information, learn about resources, and connect with others across the country to strengthen the disability field. This year’s conference theme, “Still We Rise for Equity, Opportunity, and Inclusion,” shows the resilience of individuals with disabilities and their families across the lifespan. Conference attendees will celebrate their passion for disability rights, civil rights, and human rights while exploring inclusive communities, schools, and workplaces that support people with disabilities, including those with complex support needs. Return to TASH website.

This session will demonstrate a strategy for empowering future teachers to become advocates for individuals with emotional/mental health challenges. Those of us diagnosed with emotional/mental health disabilities often face stigma and are pushed to the margins of K-12 classrooms. By using TED Talks that present first-person narratives from individuals with emotional/mental health challenges, a university instructor with personal experience with mental health disabilities was able to empower future teachers to become advocates for students who most need it. This presentation presents a step-by-step overview of the process and highlights key resources.
