Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative Implements an Online Mental and Behavioral Health Program

Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative, a Project Prevent grant recipient, has used their funds to implement an online mental and behavioral health program called Ripple Effects for middle school students. The program provides interactive modules that teach students how to cope with and take action confronting mental and behavioral health issues, including bullying, sexual harassment, child abuse, depression, drug abuse, eating disorders, and suicide. Ripple Effects is currently used by 70 of the Kentucky Valley Educational Cooperative’s 140 schools, which have seen fewer violent, aggressive, and disruptive behavior and more mental health referrals because of the program. Next year, the program will be implemented in more school across the district.
