Healthy Minds, Safe Schools

Child Safety | Quality Education | Emotional Stability

Welcome to Healthy Minds, Safe Schools


Healthy Minds, Safe Schools is a replicable and customizable mental health model for school teams based on the evidence-based framework of multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS).  Levels of social, emotional, and behavioral instruction and trauma informed care rely on preventative and proactive practices to provide increasingly strategic supports for students with intensive needs. This results in improved inclusive school cultures and creates a team problem-solving approach with the development of smart teams to teach students in civic behavior, critical thinking, and cooperative learning. Healthy Minds, Safe Schools also provides a protocol to actively case-manage the highest risk students, bridging the divide between early identification, programming and treatment options between school and community service providers.  Healthy Minds, Safe Schools is the comprehensive guide to reducing behavior problems, increasing school safety, teaching life skills and social problem-solving, and improving school systems to support students’ social, emotional, and behavioral growth.

Research strongly supports the Healthy Minds, Safe Schools model

Research shows that students who have their basic SEB needs met perform better in school and have significantly greater social-emotional skills, attitudes, and indicators of well-being compared to peers from a control group. SEB interventions are also positively correlated to higher graduation rates, increased college attendance, and safe sexual behavior as well as fewer arrests (Taylor, Oberle, Durlak, & Weissberg, 2017). By connecting students and families with community-based resources we can help them meet their basic SEB needs and can ensure our students come to school better prepared to learn.
