I deeply appreciate the commitment that MindPeace and its community mental health partners have for students and families in the district. In the past year, the district has partnered with MindPeace to provide in-building and virtual de-escalation rooms, training, consultation, mental health programming, and individual therapy. We rely on MindPeace’s collaborative expertise in prevention as well as intervention. This long standing partnership has been critical in improving mental health access across the district. Carrie Bunger, Manager for Positive Culture & Safety for Cincinnati Public Schools
Good Mental health is vital to the success and survival of students in today’s world. We have learned so much in recent years about just how important mental health is and we now know that students who get support in mental health and social-emotional well being do better both academically and socially. Addressing mental health needs in school is critically important. The Hamilton City Schools takes seriously the need and responsibility to help provide the opportunity and avenue for mental health service to children and youth. We are thankful for the support and guidance that MindPeace provides for us. As trained educators, the world of mental health can sometimes be intimidating, but MindPeace continues to support us on this journey. Each day our knowledge base and capacity expands as a direct result of support MindPeace provides to our community. We are proud partners and look forward to what the future holds and are thankful for the support our community receives as a direct result of MindPeace’s efforts!Brandon Stanfill, Director of Student Services for Hamilton City School District
MindPeace is a tremendous resource for schools trying to connect mental health services with students and families. The mission and passion of MindPeace is to make sure that all students have access to mental health services despite their economic circumstances. As a school superintendent, my experience with MindPeace has been nothing short of amazing.Todd Yohey, Superintendent of Lebanon City Schools
MindPeace has been a tremendous help with connecting partnerships and resources that focus on creating better outcomes for our most vulnerable students.
With their guidance we were able to improve our systems in place by creating a calm space for students in distress. The MindPeace Room offers a calm environment where students can get the immediate attention and support they need to become motivated learners by improving their self-regulation skills. The space not only supports the distressed student, but also supports the entire school climate by ensuring less distractions during instruction.
Making sure all of our students are successful academically and socially could not be done without the support of MindPeace.Elizabeth Cone, Resource Coordinator for Taft Elementary

Mt. Washington School has a wonderful partnership with MindPeace. Due to their on-going support we now have a fine tuned mental health service program that is a model for the district. The client base has expanded tremendously and our mental health partner continually introduces new programs to meet the ever changing needs of our students and their families! MindPeace has been instrumental in fostering the relationship between our school and our mental health provider, and our students and families have benefited so much as a result of these combined efforts.
