Take HEART Community of Practice-Compassion in Action: School-Based Mental Health Advocacy Strategies & Tips

A Train-the-Trainer Opportunity
Looking for best practices on ways to advocate for and collaborate around school mental health supports? Learn more about strategies that empower and engage all members of your school community to use their voice to advocate for policies in districts, schools, and programs that support inclusion and the implementation of effective social, emotional, and behavioral health practices.
In this panel discussion, leaders in education, behavioral health, and corporate and nonprofit fundraising and communications will share real life learnings around ways to engage stakeholders, turn naysayers into allies, and help everyone in the school community to better advocate for policies and programs in schools/districts that foster respect, promote equity, and improve the resilience of students and staff so that they can lead more productive and healthier lives.
Compassion in Action!
The New England MHTTC's School Mental Health Initiative works to cultivate compassionate school communities that prevent, respond to, and alleviate the effects of trauma. Having an understanding of a problem and empathy for the suffering of another propels us to connect with and helpthat's compassion in action.
Take the lead in bringing system-wide change strategies to your learning community. Learn more about our series and register for one or all sessions!
Our Take HEART Ambassador Program is a four session training series designed to create a school community that works together to reduce and respond compassionately to trauma, including strategies for increasing stakeholder involvement and disseminating public health and mental health literacy campaigns and materials.
Our School Mental Health Initiative develops and disseminates 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.
