When tragedy strikes, school and community leaders are often charged with helping children in their recovery. While we can’t protect children from trauma and grief, we can help them express their feelings, comfort them, help them feel safer and teach them healthy ways to cope with their fears.

Clinicians from the Child Mind Institute are available to provide phone consultations to schools and communities across the country that have been affected by scary and upsetting events, such as a natural disaster, school shooting, loss of a loved one or community violence. These consultations are designed to empower school and community leaders with information to encourage a healthy recovery in their community.
