Project Better Attitudes and Skills in Children (B.A.S.I.C) is a school-based intervention and prevention service offered to students at Pulaski Elementary School via Centerstone. A Child Development Specialist will work in the school and provide activities including mental health education, self-confidence and positive affirmations, social emotional education, and communication skills to enhance the students' school experience. This program is funded by the Tennessee Department of Mental Health and administered by Centerstone Mental Health Center. Project B.A.S.I.C.’s goal is to enhance the school services offered by the Board of Education.
Similar to guidance, curriculums in both programs emphasis character qualities. Both programs provide basic supportive counseling (not therapy), consultation, coordination, and classroom guidance. Project B.A.S.I.C. places strong emphasis on maintaining confidentiality and works towards helping students become more successful and confident.
Individual children in grades K-2 may be seen by referral from teachers, parents, or self along with a parent’s consent. If you would like more information about Project B.A.S.I.C and the role the program plays in working with the students at Pulaski Elementary School, feel free to contact our Child Development Specialist, Shelley Britt, by email: Shelley.Britt@centerstone.org
