Supporting Young People in the Wake of Violence and Trauma

This toolkit was developed by MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership in collaboration with the Mental Health Association of New York.

HERE'S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS TOOLKIT:

This guide provides mentors with recommendations and resources to help them support youth who have faced experiences with violence or trauma. Topics addressed include helping youth process their emotions, ask for help, and channel uncertain feelings into positive action. The resource includes information on a mentor’s role in these conversations, how to communicate effectively about these topics, ways to provide support, and strategies for building facilitating group and community conversations about violence and trauma.
