Healthy Relationships Plus Program

The Healthy Relationship Plus Program applies the same core principles of skill building and awareness as the Fourth R classroom-based programs, but in a non-classroom setting. This program targets the prevention of violence through the promotion of positive, healthy relationships. Ours is a proactive, competency-enhancement approach rather than a treatment. 

It is a program for small groups (6-25 youth) and has been enhanced to include a strengthened focus on mental health and suicide prevention, and drug and alcohol use. 

Intended Participants 

This program is intended for youth between the ages of 12 and 18. We strongly advise that younger youth not be included because the content and strategies were specifically selected for this age group.

It should be noted that, in some schools, guidance personnel have identified youth that they think would benefit from the program and have encouraged those youth to attend. The specific approach to identifying participants may differ depending on the needs of the school or organization.
