Important Message from the Mindful Schools Board of Directors

Dear Mindful Schools Community,

We are writing today to share sad news from the Board of Mindful Schools. Due to financial challenges, we have voted to wind up the organization, effective April 4, 2024.

We continue to believe that mindfulness is “the missing piece of the puzzle” to support K12 educators and their students. In the past year, we supported nearly 5,000 educators in 500 schools across the country – on top of the nearly 70,000 people who trained with Mindful Schools since 2013. 

While we are very sad to have made this decision, we do so knowing that our work made many lives better, and we hope that others will continue the work of bringing mindfulness to schools and districts.

Please direct any questions to

Board of Directors
Mindful Schools

We help educators create

equitable and joyful learning environments

that center collective well-being.

“Mindful Schools is our go-to organization when it comes to training and resources–– what we do, how we do it, and why we do it. We were searching for that, literally for years.”

The Mindful Schools Approach

Schools are facing a mental health crisis, with anxiety, stress, and burnout at record levels. But it doesn’t have to be this way. We take an integrated approach to create healthy school cultures in which every person feels valued, engaged, and ready to learn.
