The Resiliency Increasing Skills and Education (RISE) program is an elementary and middle school-based, voluntary program that uses evidence-based strategies. Eligibility criteria are determined by referral only through parents, school guidance counselors, deans, and teachers. RISE targets multiple risk factors including but not limited to personal and social issues, family issues, and school behavior/academic issues. The program focuses on teaching increased personal development and life skills, in order to help the youth make positive choices and lead healthy and productive lives. Students may participate in Botvin LifeSkills Training, SS GRIN group, stress management group, anger management group, grief support group, and others. Students may also receive individual support on an as-needed basis. RISE programs are located in eight Escambia and 24 Santa Rosa County Schools.
