Is your school prepared to care for the mental health and well-being of all of the students, staff, and families in your community? Join our Ambassador Program training and gain the strategies you need to cultivate a compassionate school community that buffers against negative effects of trauma, builds resilience for all students, and provides stress-relief and enhanced well-being for teachers, school personnel, and students. At this session, Dr. Martha Staeheli, Director of the New England MHTTC's School Mental Health Initiative, will share a cohesive set of practices to create a school community that works together to reduce and respond compassionately to trauma. This training and technical assistance activity will feature ways for everyone in your school community, including students, to promote well-being and advocate for improved school mental health supports and resources. Learn evidence-based strategies to initiate conversations in school and community settings about the importance of holistic mental health supports and opportunities to increase stakeholder involvement and disseminate public health and mental health literacy campaigns and materials.


Our training and technical assistance activity is a part of the New England MHTTC School Mental Health Initiative's Healthcare workers and Educators Addressing and Reducing Trauma (HEART) Collective. Learn more about the HEART Collective and how you can become a Take HEART Ambassador—an integral part of our efforts in the New England region to help educators and healthcare workers create and sustain compassionate school communities that foster respect, promote equity, and improve the resilience of students and staff so that they can lead more productive and healthier lives.
