Learn about the Cook Center for Human Connection
We all know that COVID has left many families and individuals in need of mental health supports. It was a global pandemic, and we all have been traumatized to some extent, because of it. That is why the Connecticut Children’s Collective is pleased to present a workshop highlighting the work of The Cook Center for Human Connection. Please join us Wednesday November 16, 2022, 10:00-11:30. Our Guest Speakers will be Adele Winter, Director of Growth; and Maurice Mason, Director of School & Community Advocacy.
The Cook Center for Human Connection is a non-profit, family foundation focused on providing families with access to mental health resources from the privacy of their home. They do this by partnering with school districts across the country, as they know that nearly 80% of families rely on the school system for mental health support. Their goal is to empower and educate families, so that parents can confidently address mental health concerns with their child.
They provide many no-cost resources to help your parents and staff! Please check out the following links:
