Mindful Schools is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that partners with educators to create joyful and inclusive learning environments in which all young people can thrive.
There is a great need in our communities to address mental health. The US Surgeon General’s Office has issued a youth mental health advisory in response to rising rates in depression and anxiety in young people, with health professionals saying the recent increase in youth mental health concerns will result in long-term psychological fallout.
Encouragingly, research shows that mental health is better among students who have a strong sense of connectedness with people at school and the negative health impacts of childhood trauma can be prevented by regular mindfulness practice and daily doses of nurturing interactions. At Mindful Schools, we work with educators to foster cultures of connection, well-being, and healing.
“This experience produces a radical shift in the way you will think and teach. This course is the start of a journey, towards more compassion, more space and greater understanding. How much more empathetic and effective the world would be if every student had a mindful schools’ trained teacher!” – Teacher and Mindful Schools participant
With your generosity and compassion, we can create mindful and loving schools where every adult and young person can connect with their unique talents, feel fully embraced by their community, and develop the agency to realize their full potential.
We can do this, together.
