School Mental Health

Through our School Mental Health Initiative, we develop and disseminate evidence-based resources to enhance school culture and prepare the school mental health workforce to extend trauma-skilled practices. Our efforts are designed to help schools cultivate compassionate school communities that buffer against the negative effects of trauma, build resilience for all students, and provide stress-relief and enhanced well-being for teachers and other school personnel, as well as students.


Program Highlights and Upcoming Events
Is your school trauma-skilled? Join our complimentary online events designed to strengthen mental health supports that address the needs of children who have experienced/are at risk of experiencing significant trauma. 

Visit our Virtual Training Library to select a learning track and drive professional development activities as you/your colleagues begin or extend your journey toward compassionate school mental health practices that support school staff, students, families, and the wider school community.
