Prevention Workshops

Workshops are intended for large groups of students and, in some cases, community members, providing essential education and support. Mending Matters has served 9,814 students in our classroom mental health workshops.

Our workshops are topic-specific and easy-to-implement in the school setting.

84% of students reported they… learned something new during the Pause program they can use to support their mental health

84% of students demonstrated… an awareness that it is “normal to struggle with mental health sometimes” after participating in Pause

83% of students reported they… could name where and who to go to at school if they need support with their mental health after attending a Pause workshop

3 out of 4 of Pause participants surveyed… reported they learned ways to talk about their mental health during the program
