We are partnering with small communities including schools, faith-based groups, and public and private sector workforces to educate members so that they can better care for themselves, care for one another, and identify and access local mental-health resources.

The Emotional Life Skills℠ (ELS) program delivers the skills and tools that will empower community members to better care for themselves and those they love.

Spearheaded and developed by Give an Hour’s founder and former president, Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, the program takes an evidence-driven approach backed by research showing the efficacy of social emotional learning principles and the critical role it plays in lifelong learning, social intelligence, and emotional well-being.

Mental Heath and emotional wellness have become a global health priority.  ELS delivers mental health literacy and education developed to support participant’s emotional well-being.
