Programs

Just Speak’s programs provide the opportunity to develop, implement, and evaluate trauma-informed intervention in a school setting. The results are:

  • improved behavior with fewer referrals,
  • increased attendance,
  • maximized staff and teacher satisfaction,
  • higher academic performance and readily available mental health resources for students.

Research shows that trauma-centered programs within schools break the cycle of trauma, fosters connectedness, and promote long-term well-being and resiliency for youth.

Our Executive Director, Brittni Kellom joins Dr. Chris Plum on EDGURU to share her insight on building trauma-informed communities and schools.
