Professional trainings and workshops to increase and expand educators’ and caregiver knowledge, skill, and confidence of mental health conditions and promote social emotional wellness.  Our team of expert child and adolescent clinicians are available to work with your organization. Examples of trainings include:

  • Training to help identify at-risk youth and how to work with them
  • Identifying trauma in the classroom and how to help
  • Developing successful parent-child-school relationship at college
  • Parent workshops to increase awareness of child mental health conditions and “What to look for, When to worry and What to do”

Our Child and Adolescent Psychiatrists are available for professional speaking engagements ranging from customized presentations on a particular topic of choice or selecting a presentation from our content library, which at times is a more efficient approach to meeting your needs.  Examples include:

  • The Biology of Stress: The Impact of Stress on Mental Health and Learning and How to Support Struggling Children (1 hour)
  • Fostering Resilience, Preventing Stress, Anxiety, Depression, and Suicide in Youth (1 hour)
  • The Developmental Impact of the Pandemic on Young People (1 hour)

The integration of comprehensive mental health educational curriculum is essential in today’s learning environment. However, the process of assessing current systems and programs across organizations is time intensive and often complex. When done well, these programs help foster a sense of wellbeing and resiliency in youth. Our clinicians work collaboratively with leadership teams to assess the current curriculum and landscape and make formal recommendations for  integration into school strategic plans.

The treatment of a young person suffering with a mental health condition at school can present unique challenges for all parties involved in their care. There may be special circumstances when seeking the services of an outside professional team of experts may be helpful.  In this structure, our clinicians work as an advisor to the school or organization.

As mental health education is becoming a more integral part of core curricula within schools and school districts, our programs offer educators evidence-based, practical tools that focus on empowering youth with the necessary life skills to recognize, respond to and build healthy coping mechanisms and resolution skills.  Examples of our curriculum include:
