Mental Health

Promote

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.

Prevent

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.

Empower

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!

Events

When Children Test your Patience: How to Parent with Empathy
Children need connection and guidance to grow into healthy adults. The presentation will focus on connecting with your children while disciplining. Participants will learn different methods that can be used to help guide children toward wise choices, while keeping the dignity of the child intact.
When Life Gets Hard: Parenting Through Trauma
What are Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE’s) and how does trauma impact the developing child? How does trauma “show up” in a child’s behavior? And what works to help children who have experienced grief and adversity? In this interactive webinar, you will learn about trauma’s effect on development and behavior and 5 strategies parents can use to help their child heal from traumatic experiences.
Feeling Stressed: Learn Mindfulness Parenting
Mindfulness helps you to pay attention to the here and now with kindness, openness, and curiosity. Parents will learn to let go of their distracted thinking and refocus their attention on the present in a nonjudgmental way. Mindfulness will teach parents a new way to respond to day-to-day stress of parenting, calm their mind, become less judgmental and be kinder to themselves and their children.

We are proud to announce a new collaborative effort between ChildBuilders, MHA, and Mindful Being.
