What Is Team ACCESS?

Team ACCESS (All Children Celebrated, Educated, Safe, and Successful) is a program to support the overall well-being of students, families, and school district staff across the ESU by expanding services and programs that aim to address the overall well-being of agency stakeholders.

To address the mental health needs of students, ESU 2 staff help coordinate services for students and families from outside agencies, such as professional therapists or community agencies that provide various forms of material assistance.  ESU 2 staff also directly support students through small group instruction regarding self-care, peer relationships, and other social-emotional needs.

ESU 2 also provides professional development for school staff.  Topics include Trauma Awareness, Compassion Fatigue and Self-Care, Mental Health First Aid for Youth and Adults, and other topics supporting comprehensive school mental health.

If you would like to learn more about how ESU 2 can support your students and staff through any of these programs, please contact Taira Masek (tmasek@esu2.org) or Megan Reese (mreese@esu2.org).
