Surgeon Generals Collective Well-being Framework Info-Graphic

What is the Collective Well-Being Project?

Mindful Practices has gathered a diverse team of educators and national SEL experts to reshape the Surgeon General’s Workplace Mental Health & Well-Being Framework to address the unique needs of schools. The ultimate goal is to produce an open source toolkit for principals who want to address teacher retention through Community Well-Being.

We provide principals and district leaders:

    • Engaging and provocative professional learning
    • Online resources to support Adult Well-Being
    • Online and in-person courses and certification classes
