Join us to learn how to embed a positive culture and create psychological safety for your community of students, staff, and faculty.

You’ll be guided by experts in the field as you explore ways to empower and actively engage your community as they face every day and emerging challenges.

You’ll also collaborate with leaders and educators from schools worldwide and access practical resources to share with colleagues at your school.

Together, we’ll focus on:

  • developing and embedding a culture of safety
  • empowering students to set boundaries and understand consent
  • fostering inclusive and culturally safe spaces for collaboration and learning
  • improve your community’s mental health and well-being by actively engaging students

Why is our community seeking support?

50% of mental health problems are established by age 14 and 75% by age 24.

Mental health and well-being among students is a serious and complex problem and should not be the sole purview of our campuses’ counseling centers.

Previous participants told us:

I learned how a whole school well-being program should be implemented in our school. I also learned great tips for how to talk to children who are struggling in school or at home.

The lecturers and specialists in their fields were phenomenal teachers. They were engaging and informational.

The event got me thinking on how to address issues in a more holistic way, in the sense that such a small portion of students actively seek out help. I also started thinking of developing a peer support training for the kids to help each other.

I loved the variety of topics. I benefited and learned a lot from the keynote speakers. I love the practical strategies that they gave, the advice and the resources that were shared. The fact that it was virtual and that the sessions that I couldn't attend were recorded and available at a later time to see is BRILLIANT. The fact that this will be open and available to us for 3 months is FANTASTIC giving us time to go back and reflect and have access to recordings and resources.
