Over the past three years, Kentucky residents—and especially our children—have felt the impact of multiple natural disasters, community violence events, and COVID-19. Developing preparedness plans to support students’ behavioral health before they are needed is one step in building resilience and reducing trauma among students and staff during these types of events.

The Comprehensive Behavioral Health Preparedness Toolkit supports schools, faith organizations, local agencies, and other community groups in accommodating individuals’ behavioral health needs as they prepare for, respond to, and recover from natural disasters and school crisis events.

This training will walk you through the steps to take now to prepare your community and connect you to technical assistance providers who can support your efforts in the future.

Twelve virtual trainings will be offered at no cost from April 2024 to June 2024 for agencies, schools, businesses, faith organizations, and other community groups. The registration link is located on the event flyer.
