Promoting Mental Well-being in Schools

Promoting Mental Well-being in Schools

This year, Change to Chill is partnering with 16 middle and high schools throughout Minnesota and Western Wisconsin to bring Change to Chill to their student bodies. Two students from each school participated in a virtual summer “Chill Champion” program to learn stress management and coping skills, practice mindfulness exercises and create a plan for how to implement Change to Chill in their schools for both virtual and in-person settings.


Each school received $1000 to plan a “Chill Zone,” a place for students and staff to de-stress and relax, parent/guardian communication, trainings and ongoing technical support throughout the school year. To learn more about Change to Chill School Partnership, visit the Change to Chill website.
