Programs & Initiatives

The Cochrane Healing Arts Time (CHAT) Program was developed for students at risk of disengaging from school due to the anxiety they experience from social and academic pressures. Facilitated by a certified art teacher, the CHAT Room is a calm and welcoming space for students to use healing arts as a tool to develop communications skills, self-esteem, confidence, creativity, advocacy, resilience, efficacy, and peer relationships. This safe environment improves students’ coping skills and helps them to deal with stressors more effectively as they become more productive and successful learners.
