How One EdTech Company Wants to Remove Community Stressors

COVID didn’t just have a physical impact on our population; the longterm mental health effects of mass social isolation are still up in the air. But it’s clear that for students, mental health effects were tangible as they tried to maneuver shifts in learning settings, expectations, and little to no interaction classic support systems.

This is creating new stressors for administrators as well; A recent EdWeek survey indicated that 66% of high school principals are actively searching for effective solutions to battle the escalating levels of student anxiety, avoidance and depression.

On this snippet Katie Dorn, co-founder of EmpowerU, to understand how online skill-building solutions, and a blend of small therapy-driven activities can have a positive effect on emotional wellbeing, school attendance, and grades, while decreasing the need for more costly interventions.

“As a licensed school counselor and therapist, I know how desperate educators are for cost-effective tools that actually help students overcome struggle,” Dorn said. “Although most students are unable to control their barriers, EmpowerU helps them navigate obstacles and come out the other side stronger. Students build hope that despite their difficult circumstances, they can feel better and thrive, today and in the future.”
