MindPeace Rooms are Different than Calming Rooms
Calming Rooms are spaces used to help deescalate students. Sometimes these are also referred to as Chill Zones, Sensory Spaces or Comfort Areas. MindPeace Rooms promote de-escalation and are supervised by school staff.
These staff members are trained by MindPeace on the MindPeace Room Process which not only contributes to the student’s de-escalation, but also teaches students self-regulation and resiliency skills. MindPeace Rooms facilitate safe spaces and help trusted adults build relationships within the school setting.
