The Collaboration for Adolescents Learning about Mental Health (CALM) Project was established in 2021 at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center as a response to the increase in anxiety and depression in youth. The CALM Project fosters partnerships between primary care clinics and high schools to bring medical professionals into Nebraska schools to speak directly to teens about mental health.

The main goals of The CALM Project are to:


  1. Educate teenagers on identifying mental health issues
  2. Eliminate the stigma of mental health disorders
  3. Raise awareness that these are treatable medical conditions
  4. Provide treatment resources


The CALM curriculum is specifically designed to empower those in need of mental health care to seek treatment. Additionally, we want to connect caregivers and family members with resources to navigate the process of helping a teen with a mental health condition.
