SHINE Initiative is investing $17,000 to Student Wellness Advisory Teams

Worcester nonprofit SHINE Initiative announced it is investing $17,000 to start Student Wellness Advisory Teams (SWAT) in as many as 13 schools in the Worcester Public School system.

“The social and emotional well-being of students has never been more important. The enthusiasm displayed by young people to become mental health and wellness advocates is exciting and infectious,” said Paul Richard, executive director of SHINE Initiative.

Student Wellness Advisory

SWAT is a student-led program that is designed to empower them to reduce the stigma of mental illness, end discrimination, and develop in-school activities that promote self-care, positive coping mechanisms, and improved total mental wellness.

Student Wellness Advisory Teams will be in 13 Worcester Public Schools.

The SHINE Initiative is also providing funding for programs in 11 other area schools.

The other new programs are at Groton-Dunstable Regional High School, Hudson High School, Millbury High School, Northbridge High School, St. Bernard High School in Fitchburg, Shrewsbury High School, Tahanto Regional High School in Boylston, Touchstone Community School in Grafton, and Westborough High School.
