Cultivating Awareness. Living Mindfully. Enhancing Resilience. That’s Calmer Choice’s mission. They teach young people and community members to effectively and safely manage stress and resolve conflict so that they live happy, healthy and successful lives. As an evidence-based prevention program, the goal of Calmer Choice is to provide skills that will diminish the risk of violence, substance abuse, and other self-destructive behaviors. By collaborating with schools and community programs, they not only provide direct service to thousands of young people each year but also provide support and resources for teachers and for families, many of whom are facing their own socio-economic, substance abuse and mental health challenges.
