Center for Resiliency

Trauma is a physically or emotionally distressing experience that affects individuals in different ways. By building resiliency—or the ability to bounce back from adversity—we help children who have experienced trauma learn to regain a sense of security and well-being. Tanager Place offers critical resources and support for educators, parents, care providers and community members to build resiliency in children and families who have experienced trauma.

Youth Mental Health First Aid

If you saw someone choking, chances are you would know what to do. But what if you saw someone having a panic attack? How would you act? What would you say?

One in five children has a diagnosable mental health challenge that can be helped with professional intervention and treatment. Youth Mental Health First Aid (YMHFA) is an eight-hour training class that teaches educators, nurses, parents and other adults who work with children to recognize the signs of a mental health crisis and respond appropriately.
