The Healthcare workers and Educators Addressing and Reducing Trauma (HEART) Collective is facilitating a webinar series and complimentary community of practice.

1st Thursday: Evidence-based Practices to Enhance Efficacy 

In these 60-minute sessions, experts in education, mental health, and healthcare from New England will share the EBPs they have used to forge and maintain successful collaborations around comprehensive school mental health systems. 


3rd Thursday: Peer Support Hours to Learn from One Another and Receive Technical Assistance 

For these 60-minute sessions, members of the community of practice are invited to share their own experiences around the month's topic and ask questions about specific challenges.


Leaders in education, community-based primary healthcare and those with lived experience of mental illness have been meeting since September 2020 to discuss effective collaboration between schools and healthcare centers or community mental/behavioral health centers to address childhood trauma as the HEART Collective. Out of the HEART Collective discussions came the need for a community of practice to explore how best practices in this process look in the real world, while supporting the educators, healthcare workers, and mental health professionals involved in these multi-sector collaborations.
