Grace Schoessow, MS, spoke to approximately 130 Miami faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates on the importance of early childhood mental health. Her talk encapsulated data from her work on the Safe Schools Health Students grant in Greene County where she works as an Early Childhood Mental Health Consultant, building relationships between parents, childcare professionals, and early learning programs.

Dr. Cricket Meehan came up with the idea of having Ohio students send letters to offer compassion and encouragement to students their age in the hurricane zones. The CSBMHP connected with various Ohio schools to collect the letters, package them, and send them to the impacted schools who indicated that they would like to receive letters for their students.
