CBS4: Aurora Public Schools Prioritize Mental Health For Teachers During Remote Learning

Story excerpt:

"For the past two months, teachers across the state have been transitioning their lesson plans from the classroom to an online platform due to measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

'The challenges of teaching virtually have to be so difficult,' Megan Lonergan, the director of employee relations at Aurora Public Schools said.

With those challenges in mind, Lonergan said they decide to fast track a partnership with Meru Health to offer their staff more accessible mental health support.

'We wanted something different,' she said. 'So when you’re having a bad day you don’t have to wait a week to see your therapist.'"
