School and Community Programs

School and Community Programs

Founded in 2012, the Child Mind Institute’s School and Community Programs have delivered mental health support to more than 140,000 students, caregivers, educators, and counselors in over 9,000 schools. Breaking down barriers to care, the program brings a suite of evidence-based services to prevent and treat student mental health disorders in school and community settings. We also build the capacity of school communities to meet students’ mental health needs independently.
