A new room at Carnegie Elementary, The Chill Room, is designed to be a safe place where students can go to relax and manage stress. If a youngster is having a bad day or needs some time to regroup from anxiety or emotions that have gotten out of control, they can visit the Chill Room.

Social and emotional learning has become a priority in schools. The Chill Room is designed to reduce stress and anxiety and to create a mindfulness of one’s own actions. Evidence-based coping skills will be shared with youngsters to build resilience.  The room offers dim lighting, comfortable seating, relaxing music and the rippling sound of water from a small waterfall.

The Chill Room will be staffed with a school-based therapist, a licensed clinical supervisor and clinician, and a medication manager. These individuals are trained to help students identify and manage stress and anger. The professional counselors will use practiced, preventative measures to help soothe and calm youngsters who may be needing some words of comfort. The project will be supervised by Dr. William Davies of The Chill Project and Jefferson Counseling on behalf of AHN.

In addition, the staff of the Chill Room will provide resources and training for Carnegie Elementary teachers and staff while offering support and intervention services.
