COPE for the Classroom

Through a series of brief, easy-to-follow sessions, complete with skills-building activities, the evidence-based COPE Programs convey that there is hope for change, and that both depression and anxiety are treatable. COPE recognizes that we can't control trigger events, but we can control our responses to them.

Public and Private Middle Schools, High Schools, Districts, Colleges/Universities

Start preparing now for Fall classes! Completing the COPE Instructors Training in the Spring/Summer will enable your school to begin offering the COPE manual-based programs to students individually or in a classroom at the start of the new school year.

COPE2Thrive provides all-inclusive programs (including instructor training and materials) delivered using standardized student manuals and concepts, ensuring that all components of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy are covered with student despite any differences in a instructor’s background, experience or method of delivery.

We offer two cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)-based, instructor-delivered health and wellness programs (7- and 15-session) with all instructor training included that are easily teachable (delivered using age-focused student manual/workbook) by counselors, school nurses, and many teachers to students in either one-on-one or group sessions at K-12 schools and universities.

Our evidence-based programs can be integrated into a schools mental health curriculum for as little as $385 (program materials and training for one instructor/teacher and five student manuals.)

COPE2Thrive Online and Manual-based Programs have been delivered to over 8400 children and teens in 41 U.S. states.

New York first state to require mental health education in schools:

"In July, the state will make history as the first to enact legislation requiring all elementary, middle, and high schools to incorporate mental health education into their curricula. Like physical education, mental health education will cover a wide range of areas, striving to reframe mental health as “integral” to overall health and giving students the tools to cope with a disorder in their own lives."

New Missouri law requires schools to have a policy on suicide prevention programs:

"This act requires each public institution of higher education to develop and implement a policy to advise students and staff on suicide prevention programs available on and off campus that includes, but is not limited to crisis intervention access, mental health program access, multimedia application access, student communication plans, and post intervention plans."


The COPE2Thrive CBT- and manual-based 7- and 15-session programs are designed to be "taught from the manual", so they can be delivered by counselors, teachers, school nurses, etc. to students in either one-on-one or group sessions. All instructor training is available online, 24/7 and can be completed in only a few hours. The programs can be easily integrated into existing curriculum or serve as a stand-alone program.
