• Early Education Mental Health Programs: Trauma and Resilience Informed Early Enrichment (TRiEE) Program

    Program Description

    The Trauma and Resilience informed Early Enrichment (TRiEE) Program is a trauma-informed mental health prevention initiative and unique adaptation of the Community Schools Model for Early Education Centers (EECs). TRiEE is dedicated to building adult capacity to increase protective factors and reduce risk factors for children, staff, and families. The TRiEE Program is an innovative approach that features the integration of 20 trained School Mental Health (SMH) Psychiatric Social Workers (PSWs) in select EECs to strengthen schools’ capacity to provide holistic, family-centered, and trauma-informed services to support healthy social emotional learning and school readiness.
