Classroom Café is a podcast created by the UFT Member Assistance Program to support the well-being of public school educators and the social-emotional health of their students.

Classroom Café is all about brewing the conversation with fellow educators. We cover everything from mindfulness meditation to confronting substance use – either your own, your students or a loved one — to navigating interpersonal relationships in challenging times.

Selma Williams is the host. A new episode is released on the final Monday of each month.

Listen to Classroom Café wherever you get your podcasts. It’s available on iTunes, Spotify, Google Podcasts and SoundCloud.

Teenagers test limits and push boundaries. But some behaviors, such as withdrawing from friends and family or increased anger and mood swings, may indicate your teenager or child is struggling with their mental health. In this episode of Classroom Café, we are joined by Lexi Mulee, a licensed mental health clinician and the founder of Wise Mind Counseling. Mulee specializes in working with teens and will discuss ways to build positive relationships with them as well as the warning signs that your student may need help.
