A healthy, safe, and supportive learning environment forms the foundation for student well-being and academic success.
At the Johns Hopkins School of Education, we firmly believe that addressing the social and emotional well-being of students requires a holistic approach that extends beyond the confines of the classroom. Through our pioneering work, and research centers like the Center for Safe and Healthy Schools, our counseling experts are leading the national conversation around promoting student well-being and addressing psychosocial challenges.
With a commitment to evidence-based practices and a collaborative approach, we empower educators, administrators, program managers, and policymakers to serve their students, schools, and communities more effectively. Our comprehensive human development research broadens the insights and strategies available to stakeholders, supporting their efforts to create inclusive and nurturing environments for all learners.
Empowering Personal Growth
A safe and supportive learning environment impacts student social and emotional well-being in many ways. Our research — which focuses on topics ranging from school and community engagement to trauma and adverse experiences — helps evaluate and establish best practices for school counselors and other mental health professionals.

School counselors are in short supply and school counselors with specialized mental health skills are in even greater demand.
