Helping with Recovery - 5:13
with Jill Blackson, Deputy Director of Community Care Services
Posted Jul 02, 2018
Community Care Services (CCS) is a nonprofit agency that serves people with mental health and substance use disorders. They operate a variety of programs for children and adults that focus on the individual’s unique needs. CCS starts with the person first — developing innovative services that provide the care, resources, and connections to help each person in the best way possible. Recovery is possible. Recovery is defined as the process through which people find ways of living meaningful lives without ongoing symptoms of their conditions. We believe all people have the inherent right to find their individual path to what is meaningful, and we are here to support that process.

Impacts of Toxic Stress and Learning in the Classroom
Center on the Developing Child of Harvard University reports that toxic stress response can occur when a child experiences strong, frequent, and/or prolonged adversity such as physical or emotional abuse, chronic neglect, caregiver substance abuse or mental illness, exposure to violence, and/or the accumulated burdens of family economic hardship without adequate adult support. Becky Carlton, Director of Strategy and Partnership for Michigan's Charter School Association, joins host Laurel Hess for a discussion on how toxic stress impacts learning in the classroom.
