4 What’s Next
4 What’s Next is a primary prevention program that builds resiliency in high school students by giving them the tools to handle stress and distress now and in their future.
The 4 What’s Next Framework aims to teach students how to effectively handle distress by “reaching in” and utilizing personal coping strategies, “reaching out” by seeking and accepting help outside of themselves, or a combination of the two. This process is followed by an assessment of how well their chosen coping method is working and encourages them to reevaluate if needed.
- Identify individual manifestations of distress
- Understand how internal and external stressors impact mental health
- Build resilience by learning specific actions to improve mental wellness
