SEL, Wellness and Prevention

Last Updated: 7/18/2022 6:24 PM

Together we will choose to promote mental wellness by: encouraging trauma informed practice, supporting social and emotional learning, advocating for mental health supports, and engaging educators, students, and their families in prevention. 



Our team offers a vast array of impactful learning opportunities to support teachers, administrators, and staff in establishing learning environments supportive to student growth - and sessions to support the wellbeing of educators themselves. Our team can create and schedule a plan that best fits the needs of your district and staff. Check out the full list of ESCEO SEL, Wellness & Prevention Supports!


Our team provides impactful professional learning opportunities for guidance teams, educators, administrators, and school support staff to help districts support whole child learning through the latest social emotional learning topics, tools, and resources.
