The Chill Project by AHN— Mindfulness Program for Schools

The Chill Project uses mindfulness-based exercises to equip students, teachers, and parents with a common language and universal skills to identify, discuss, and react positively to stress.

School has always been a source of stress, whether you’re taking classes, teaching, or parenting a student. Negative reactions to stress create a significant barrier to learning and growth. The Chill Project features dedicated professionals, a calming space, and regular instruction to help every member of a school’s community better handle pressure and anxiety.

Participating schools have experienced:

  1. Reduced number of behavioral health incidents for students, like chronic absence, disruptive behavior, dropping out, and feelings of hopelessness.
  2. Increased access to resources and sense of professional quality of life for educators and administrators as well as increased well-being for parents and caregivers.
  3. Enhanced mindful awareness and resiliency across the school community.

Participants in The Chill Project have access to:

  • One-to-one counseling.
  • Support groups.
  • Medication management.
  • School-based outpatient services.
  • School-wide preventive services.
  • Professional development opportunities.
  • A social-emotional curriculum and classroom consultations.
  • Exercises and consultations specifically designed for student athletes.
