E•ƒ(ec)tive Mental Health
EFEC is committed to identifying and backing a new, more equitable approach to social-emotional learning support for students in schools. We seek to ensure that every Eagle County School is staffed with a behavioral counselor, and that each professional has the resources they need to be effective. EFEC has invested over $300,000 in mental health support for our schools.
While EFEC has always committed to teacher mental health, during the COVID-19 pandemic we learned the increasing need for this work. We have developed and established a menu of immediate and long-term impact programs to support teachers' mental health. The programs are designed to provide time, self-care tools, "brain breaks", and increase morale by expressing gratitude.
