Debi and Andy Butler DCSD Brain Health Retreat Room Fund
The Brain Health Retreat Room allows students’ a space to build skills that will help them learn to deal with stress and anxiety prior to getting to extreme cases where they aren’t able to stay in class on a daily basis.
The Brain Health Retreat Room is staffed by an individual certified in brain health education. These staff members assist in strategies, coping skills, assessments and other activities students are doing to process through their feelings. If staff feel further intervention is needed, a school counselor is called in to meet with the student.
The staff in these rooms are able to recognize if students would benefit from additional brain health resources and provide information for outside help.
