School - Based Programming

PASS offers a variety of K-12, evidence-based programs to schools, ranging from social emotional learning curriculum that aim to teach important life skills such as decision making, emotion regulation, distress tolerance, and mindfulness to specific curriculum that focus on the prevention of suicide, substance use/misuse (alcohol, nicotine, marijuana use etc.), and gambling disorders. School administrators and/or staff can contact PASS to discuss the issues specific to their local community and select programs and/or services that meet their needs. PASS staff are trained prevention specialists/curriculum facilitators that provide the majority of programming at no charge to the schools via grant funding from the Mental Health Board (ADAMH) and a variety of other funding sources. Schools can make an appointment to discuss needs or simply call or email to schedule a specific program from PASS's school-based menu found below.
