What questions do you have about student mental health as you look ahead to the next school year in Chicago?

Manuel Martinez

Chicago parents, what questions do you have about student mental health?

Between the pandemic, remote learning, school work and social media, Chicago students have lots to be stressed about.

That’s why WBEZ’s Community Engagement and Education Teams, in partnership with Illinois Latino News and The Chicago Reporter, are surveying Chicago parents of school-aged kids about student mental health. What questions do you have about how to keep your child healthy while learning? What kind of help could you use as a parent heading into the next school year?

Please fill out this brief survey!

Based on what you tell us, we’re hosting a free virtual event August 18th aimed at answering as many of your questions as possible about student mental health. Register for free today! We’re also planning to put on some in-person resource fairs to connect Chicago parents with information and resources. Our goal is to give you the information you need to start the next school year off on the right foot!
