Resilience Promotion in African American Children

The Resilience Promotion in African American Children program provides prevention and early intervention services to African American children/youth (ages 5-18) and their families by incorporating African American values, beliefs and traditions in mental health educational programs. This program promotes resilience in African American children in order to mediate the development of mental health and/or substance abuse disorders.

Services are offered at school site locations and focus on the strengths of the African American community. The program includes curriculum-based education, cultural awareness activities, conflict resolution training, educational workshops, on-going weekly interventions, career-related presentations, parent support/education, and linkage to additional resources. Educational workshops and group presentations are conducted to assist African Americans in feeling comfortable in seeking mental health preventative services from staff that are knowledgeable and capable of identifying needs and solutions for African American families and individuals.
