The Office of the Student Advocate (OSA) is partnering with the Office of the Deputy Mayor of Education (DME) this week to host a week-long social media campaign, entitled “Don’t Mute Mental Health”. The goal of the series is to promote physical, mental, and emotional wellness in students, families, and teachers amid-COVID-19.
The Instagram Live events will be held on OSA’s Instagram account (@dc.advocate) each day and will include discussions with local and national experts. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Courtney Warren (Courtney.firstname.lastname@example.org) or Renatta Landrau (Renatta.Landrau@dc.gov).
