About ProjectHEAL

ProjectHEAL Inc. is a non profit organization, with 501 (c) (3) status, founded in Chicago, Illinois. Our Theory of Change is centered upon educating school leaders, school staff, teachers, parents, caregivers and students, nationwide, on subjects of Trauma, Coping, Mental Health and Personal Wellness. ProjectHEAL's sister company, ProjectHEAL LLC. offers more contextualized, and culturally relevant, trauma-informed consulting for schools, school districts, charter networks and community based organizations who have tailored visions and goals.

Above all, we aim to de-stigmatize conversations about Mental Health and increase the awareness of how Mental Health struggles may hinder healthy relationship building, learning experiences and student-brain development.

Creating Real Value

"I learned about how students who have behaviors or other signs of trauma, sometimes don't know how to get help. In my mind I've always kind of assumed that they would just automatically know to ask a trusted adult for help and explain their situation. However, I've learned this is not the case. For me it means that I will need to be more diligent in looking for the signs of trauma or stress."

~ The Noble Network of Charter Schools
