Building a robust Tier 1 foundation for your Multi-Tiered System of support is an enormous undertaking, and our team is ready to help. 

We will employ the process of Strategic Doing to help establish a vision for your future state.

 

We utilize assessments that promote a positive mindset to help your district understand the current state of your staff and faculty's well-being.

Our team will help you gather the champions already working in your classrooms who can serve as early adopters to influence laggards who may resist implementing Tier 1 supports across the curriculum. 

Visit THE PROCESS page to get an overview of what this transition may look like in your district.

We are here to work alongside you and your leadership team so that a culture of care can take shape in a way that best serves your students and staff. 

Sources of Strength is a culture-building program based on hope and healing. Students and adults create a network of care within schools so that every student can identify a trusted adult or peer to connect with when experiencing a crisis or need.

Wellness Recovery Action Planning

WRAP® is a wellness approach that helps people to:

1. Decrease and prevent intrusive or troubling feelings and  behaviors

2. Increase personal empowerment

3. Improve the quality of life

4. Achieve their own life goals and dreams.

School Care Team members deliver the course to junior and senior high school students in academic health classes. The course runs for 7 weeks. 

Restorative Practices

Restorative approaches are all about building community and strengthening relationships. Restorative approaches are based on the idea that when we feel part of a supportive community, we respect others in that community and become accountable to each other. 

The School Care Team reviews your current suicide and crisis protocol develops a new plan or offers revisions, then trains your staff and faculty so that every adult on campus understands and knows how to respond in the event of a mental health emergency. Prevention, intervention, and postvention are vital elements to creating a safe and supportive culture. Our plan includes the development of a Wellness Response Team, which inserts a positive approach to supporting students and adults in crisis. 

QPR: Question, Persuade, Refer

QPR can be learned in the Gatekeeper course in as little as 90 minutes.

Basic life-saving skills are expected requirements for many professions. QPR is a similar life-saving skill set that should be learned and practiced.

Mindset Reset

Mindset Reset is a program delivered by School Care Team members in elementary and middle school classrooms. Four presentations introduce strengths-based concepts of self-management and care:

  1. Regulating Big Emotions

  2. Communication and Connection

  3. Respecting Boundaries

  4. Discovering Personal Value

Connecting Teachers

Wellness for teachers means wellness for students!

Teacher Cafes allow staff to discuss challenges using a productive    forum. Our online platform keeps teachers connected.

When used in each classroom or through school-wide assemblies, the Kimochis program helps schools build a strong, positive, communicative school culture and climate.

The Kimochis curriculum can stand alone or enhance and extend an existing character education program. Kimochis lessons teach children to be:

  • Respectful: Use a respectful voice, face, words, and actions; listen to upset feelings

  • Responsible: Speak up for self or others; admit and own mistakes

  • Resilient: Work through emotion alone or with help; bounce back from difficult moments

  • Compassionate and Kind: Have empathy or concern for others; look for moments to be kind to self and others
