As we move into the Spring, with the anniversary of the shooting just past and school break approaching when many students and staff will be most in need of support, PU4P is preparing events to foster our members' training and collaboration. It is especially important to be mindful of establishing support networks for students for the upcoming school break. Some suggestions include assisting students in making and keeping a routine and helping them to identify support people before the break begins. We encourage the promotion of community resources and organizations and strongly suggest that if you are a trauma-informed mental health provider and have not already been through the vetting process to be included on the PU4P provider list, please click here and we will help you get started.
