Project THRIVE

Project THRIVE was created by the Delaware Department of Education (DDOE) to provide free mental health services to eligible Delaware students. Services are available to students – grades pre-k through 12 – attending Delaware public schools, private schools, parochial schools, and homeschools. Project THRIVE services help students struggling with traumatic situations, such as physical or emotional abuse, community violence, racism, bullying, and more. Trauma can harm mental and physical health and limit school success.
