School Based Mental Health – Party in a Box

December 12, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Spread holiday cheer to some of our most marginalized neighbors with a Party in a Box! Volunteers will create holiday decorations and drop them off at a program site to help our programs make their spaces merry and bright for the holiday season. Suggested decorations include garlands, wreaths, plastic lights, red and green disposable tablecloths, candy canes, or any other creative ideas you may have. We do ask that you refrain from bringing glass items, sharp objects, candles, or any food containing nuts.

Impact of the volunteer:

You will drop off a Party in a Box. The staff at School Based Mental Health Program will use the decorations you provide to make their space merry and bright for the holiday season. These decorations will help us spread some holiday joy among our most vulnerable clients at Catholic Charities.

Catholic Charities Program Served:

Falling under our Adult and Children Clinical Services, the School Based Mental Health Program provides support through three tiers of services to students, teachers, staff and families. Tier 1 services include promotion and primary prevention services and support, such as staff professional development and classroom-based social emotional learning opportunities. Tier 2 services include focused interventions for a smaller school population, such as specific support groups and consultation with families and staff who work with identified children. Tier 3 services are a more intensive level of support for students who have been identified as in need of individualized therapy to improve their functioning at school and home, and in the community.
