Supporting your efforts to meet student’s needs
Enhancing the MMH curriculum to the context of your classroom
Because the Michigan Model for Health (MMH) is an evidence-based curriculum, the purpose of MI-LEAP is to build on its success and improve its delivery, specifically to students who need it most.
Our goal is to help educators break down the barriers to effectively working with students who have been exposed to adverse childhood trauma experiences (ACEs). We promote the health and well-being of students by creating a trauma-informed classroom and utilizing a universal prevention intervention that’s beneficial to all students.
Our research has identified the following three focus areas when it comes to facilitating the MMH:
As a high school educator, you have the unique opportunity to make a long-term impact in a student’s life. But knowing when to reach out and what to say can be half the battle.
That’s why we want to collaborate with you, to enhance the Michigan Model for Health (MMH). This is an opportunity for you to help model the MMH to work most effectively in your classroom.
MI-LEAP uses the Enhanced Replicating Effective Programs (Enhanced REP) strategy to design the tools, training, and resources teachers need to implement MMH in a way that is responsive to students’ needs.
Through an additional component of hands-on support for teachers, we can. help you integrate trauma-informed approaches to your classroom.
