Educators and school officials were the ones learning Wednesday at Sullivan High School.
Faculty and staff took a course in Trauma Informed Care.
Trainers, in collaboration with Hamilton Center, taught them how to recognize certain signs and symptoms that a student may need help, and how to help them.
The training is part of a Lily Endowment grant, which has already taught staff about social and emotional health, and youth mental health.
“I think it’s a way to keep open lines of communication with kiddos and if they’re not coming to school, why aren’t they coming to school? What can we do to get kids to be successful at school?” says SHS Guidance Counselor Katie Couch.
This training wasn’t the only thing happening at Sullivan High School on Wednesday. Sophomores and juniors took the PSAT, freshmen made a college visit to Ivy Tech and seniors did community service projects throughout the area.
