Our mission at the Indiana School Mental Health Initiative is to work alongside school districts and community partners to create a community of practice by providing resources, consultation, professional development, and education that promote and sustain the social, emotional, behavioral, mental, and physical health of Indiana’s school-aged children.
The reason we do this work is because we know through our practice and our research that children with stressed brains perform considerably less well in school than those children who are able to come to school prepared to learn. Our work is focused on ensuring that all children, regardless of circumstance, are provided with the social emotional skills and good mental health needed to be successful. Each day we strive to assist schools and community partners in creating the conditions for learning for all of Indiana’s school-aged children.
