Watch our new CRISE webinar: Implementation of Two School-Based Mental Health Promotion Programs
This webinar aims to shed light on the positive impacts of the Zippys Friends and Passport: Skills for Life mental health promotion programs. Both these programs are shown to encourage acquisition of useful coping strategies and the general emotional wellbeing of elementary school children, in first grade (Zippys Friends) and 4th and 5th grades (Passport: Skills for Life). Through fun and educational activities, both programs help children develop useful coping strategies that help them deal with lifes trials.
