Mental Health


Decades of research confirm what we’ve always known: healthy relationships and positive parenting are key to mental health. ChildBuilders’ ground-breaking programs teach children today the parenting skills they will need in the future and help students learn social-emotional skills critical to building healthy relationships throughout their lives.


Abuse & Violence

Abuse & Violence

The continuum of violence extends from aggression to abuse. To stop violence before it begins, ChildBuilders arms children, parents, and teachers with the skills of assertiveness, empathy, emotional control, and resilience. Equipped with these tools, we are able to protect ourselves, stand up for each other, and resolve conflict nonviolently.


Kids, Parents, & Teachers

Kids, Parents, & Teachers

ChildBuilders’ professional development trainings and workshops employ a train-the-facilitator model, reaching hundreds of adults each year. With our curricula, facilitators are able to empower tens of thousands of children with life-enhancing information and skills. Attend a ChildBuilders training and make a difference in the life of a child!


Recognizing and Reporting Child Maltreatment

Refresher: Stand Strong • Stay Safe – Early Childhood
Refresher trainings provide participants with an opportunity to update their curriculum presentation skills. We recommend presenters attend a refresher training every other year.
