Strengthening the BRYT network through research and relationship building

As the BRYT network expands throughout Massachusetts, schools and other partners have new opportunities to evaluate, test, and collect data to better meet all students’ needs.

This is the Time to Lead with Mental Health and Equity in Mind 

Based on BRYT’s experience supporting leaders and educators during the pandemic, this report details why the pivot in favor of school mental health grounded in equity is critical to the future health and success of all students, educators, and families, and includes practical guidance for school and district leaders about how to conceptualize and do the transformational work needed to promote resiliency and build equitable support systems now.

Produced in partnership with the Ruderman Family Foundation.
