Kassy Rousselle 

Asset-Based Mental Health Support Cohort

This 5 consecutive week series will provide time and space for school-age afterschool professionals to explore and apply strategies from the breadth of mental health resources. The series will incorporate asset-based approaches from 40 Developmental Assets and Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child (WSCC) frameworks that emphasize strategies most applicable to afterschool & summer programs. This cohort model will encourage participants to share real-life challenges as they deepen their understanding and participate in a space where they apply strategies and incorporate practices within organizational systems. Participants will examine how out-of-school time programs work to support students' social-emotional health outcomes over the students' lives, particularly incorporating culturally-responsive practices that recognize not everyone deals with Mental Health in the same ways.
