Youth and Mental Health and the Need for Trusted Adults

Kate Donaldson experienced her first of daily panic attacks while she was in high school.  She describes the anatomy of her panic attack in this audio story.  Luckily, Donaldson had access to some key resources during this time, including trusted adults.
Donaldson went on to study psychology and applied her studies in the field.  Today, she’s partnered with Dr. Luci Hackbert, a local clinical psychologist specializing in social and emotional learning curriculum, to create the calm and connected toolkit
The toolkit offers a call for communities to create a web of trusted adults for our youth.  Listen in on the genesis of this program and how it works.
