Child Study Team

We deliver services to all school personnel (from administrators, school aides to teachers) a series of psycho-educational workshops, grade-specific meetings, 1:1 consultations (as needed) and monthly wellness activities. These services strengthen mental health literacy training and promote adult self-care so staff is better equipped to foster social/emotional development and academic success in our youth.

All personnel are provided trainings on:

  • Common school-aged mental health disorders, symptoms in the classrooms/cafeteria, and available services
  • Referral policies and procedures to improve familiarity and confidence referring students displaying mental health symptoms
  • Trauma-informed classroom strategies to manage behaviors and reduce stress in students
  • Bullying awareness and how to prevent it
  • Healthy lifestyle practices aimed to boost adult performance & well-being
  • De-stigmatizing mental health-related issues
  • Stress management strategies for adult self-care and how to model self-care for children
