The Mission of Reset Schools

Creating a culture of mental health

Our goal is to make mental health the de facto cultural standard in schools. We believe that mental health is a learned skill, and should be prioritized just as much as math and science. We work to simplify things as much as possible—making sure that we give students resources that they can easily memorize and use for a lifetime, and providing administrators with a clear plan for school-wide implementation.

Partnering with parents and school staff

We’re working to provide resources to parents and school staff that help them reach kids with an easy-to-implement system. It’s easy to use our resources—our 3-Step Action Plan helps schools to follow the to-do items and implement the exercises.
