Thriving Minds: Trauma-Responsive Practices Coaching Cohort

About the Project

Many children began school this year having experienced significant trauma from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Schools must respond to this need by providing thoughtful, effective trauma-responsive supports. This is a critical element in building a comprehensive school mental health system that promotes student wellbeing in meaningful, consistent ways. To provide guidance and support for schools and districts to build comprehensive school mental health systems that address the holistic needs of their students, the Massachusetts School Mental Health Consortium, bryt, and the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy have come together to lead the Thriving Minds initiative. 

In partnership with the Center on Child Wellbeing and Trauma, Thriving Minds is now accepting applications from district and school teams interested in participating in a Coaching Cohort on Trauma-Responsive Practices for School Mental Health. Members of the Coaching Cohort will be paired with an experienced coach who will meet with each team regularly throughout the school year to guide their next steps. The Coaching Cohort is best suited for districts or schools with strong leadership buy-in for this work and a dedicated team able to apply what they learn.


Please contact Amanda Chung, Associate at the Rennie Center, if you have any questions.
 

Application due Friday, November 18th at 5 pm. 

The Center on Child Wellbeing and Trauma (funded by the state through the Office of Child Advocacy) supports child-serving professionals and organizations in becoming trauma-informed and responsive with resources, tools, training, and technical assistance.

Thriving Minds–a collaboration between bryt, the Massachusetts School Mental Health Consortium, and the Rennie Center for Education Research & Policy–aims to help educators build comprehensive school mental health systems.
