School-Based Mental Health Interventions in a High Trauma Setting

This presentation will look at creative intervention strategies to address the continually evolving needs in a newcomer campus that works primarily with Latino students. We will discuss the spectrum of “traditional” mental health services as well as best practices that have been implemented, including the therapy bunny, garden, and restorative circles. An overview of the needs of the school and the students will be presented to provide background on the development and implementation of the intervention strategies. The challenges that have arisen, creative solutions that have been adopted and the unexpected successes will be shared to provide participants strategies that they can implement in their settings.
