Prevention: K-12 Student Mental Health Skill-Building
The Child Mind Institute School and Community Programs mental health skill-building curriculum is a workshop series designed to teach students a set of evidence-based coping skills. These skills enable them to regulate their emotions, manage difficult thoughts and behaviors, interact effectively with others, and engage in relaxation and mindfulness practices to navigate stressful situations. The curriculum is designed to be delivered through six modules adapted for grades K to 12.
Please follow these steps to help streamline the process to bring our mental health skill-building curriculum to your school:
Establish a consistent and responsive point of contact to coordinate the application process, scheduling, logistics, data collection, and caregiver communication.
Once our team confirms partnership, provide a consistent classroom meeting space for weekly or daily student workshops.
The Child Mind Institute would like to note that our School and Community Programs team prioritizes student populations with the highest need for services. If we can partner, we will reach out to the point of contact provided.
This series can be delivered once a week for six weeks or in a weeklong format. Our team can accommodate up to 40 students in each workshop, which are typically delivered in a classroom environment. If you are interested in scheduling this series for a student assembly or event, please contact Fernando Lopez at Fernando.Lopez@childmind.org.
