Social, Emotional and Mental Wellness

The Netter Center has been collaborating with CHOP and its Healthier Together initiative to develop a place-based comprehensive approach to social, emotional and mental wellness in University-Assisted Community Schools that supports students, caregivers, and staff. 2020-21 served as a pilot year for programming at Comegys and Hamilton K-8 schools, which included grief and trauma peer support groups and family empowerment workshops through a contract with Uplift Center for Grieving Children. This programming expanded to include Lea School in fall 2021.
