Inspire Youths Mentoring has partnered with Florida Futures Academy to provide integrated mental and behavioral health recognition services. At the center of our services is creating an educational environment that is adopting a trauma-informed approach. We aim to shift, at the staff and organizational level, to recognize, understand and address the learning needs of children impacted by trauma. This requires a commitment to shaping school culture, practices, and policies to be sensitive to the needs of traumatized learners. This effort positively impacts schools and changes the life trajectory of vulnerable students. Through a trauma-informed lens, we incorporate evidence-based best practice screenings tools to identify students in need of additional supports or services.

Intervention objectives:

  • Recognize, assess and treat behavioral health disorders
  • Strengthen the relationships between staff, children who have experienced
    trauma, and their caregivers
  • Determine when to refer patients to behavioral health specialists
  • Identify mental health resources in the community
  • Employ therapeutic, healing relationships in an educational setting
  • school discipline reflect an understanding of the role of trauma in student behaviors
  • Utilize interviewing and listening skills that lead to a compassionate, empathetic educational environment
