This study looks at school employees' mental health, well-being, and effectiveness before and after completing a professional development workshop. The participants' schools are offering the Cultivating Awareness and Resilience in Education (CARE) professional development workshop to all teachers, staff, and administrators. CARE will be presented in three in-person training sessions over two to three months during the school year. People who participate in CARE are asked to answer questions about their demographic information, mental health, well-being, and effectiveness before the workshop and two times after completing the workshop. This consent form provides the necessary information for people interested in answering these questions to make an informed decision. This consent form is not for the professional development workshop. Taking part in the workshop and questionnaires is optional. This study is being conducted because teachers, school staff, and children's mental health has declined since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. The investigators hope to use information collected in this study to tell schools, local public health officials, and state leaders how best to support teachers' mental health and well-being. There are minimal risks associated with this study. The greatest risk of this study is loss of confidentiality.
