Collaborative Partnership

Our evidence-based training programs rely on collaborative partnerships, beginning with a needs and readiness assessment before training. Our work includes ongoing consultation and implementation guidance by clinicians, to ensure sustainable service delivery for your community.

Rooted in Best Practices 

Clinicians draw from the latest research to provide effective and individualized training while creating turnkey resources.

Proven Results

Students receiving mental health services from our training programs show an increase in coping skills and emotion regulation and a decrease in symptoms of PTSD, depression, and behavioral difficulties. Ninety-five percent of trainees said they would recommend this training program to school staff.

250+schools served
1,000+educators and mental health professionals trained
50,000+students reached

It is rare to find a resource that takes into account the needs of the school environment while also using evidence-based mental health tools. Before getting connected with the Child Mind Institute, it was challenging to find high quality training and curriculum for mental health skill-building that is specifically designed to be used by school professionals who do not have a clinical background… even better that it was developed in English and Spanish which is a must for our community!

Whole Child Program Coordinator

My students developed a sense of relief when they understood that having “big feelings” is not unusual when one has experienced trauma.  The coping cards have been a priceless tool in helping my them stay connected in the “here and now” and knowing that they are safe.  I have also shared the strategies with parents so they can be practiced at home in fun ways.
