Presence Restorative Justice (RJ) Lab Partnership with the Stanford Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program (ELSPAP)-Tipping Point Community Wellness Program

The Tipping Point funded Wellness Program is housed within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences. "The Wellness Program – a partnership between Stanford’s Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program (ELSPAP) and the Tipping Point Community – presents CBOs (Community Based Organizations) with opportunities to access a program of comprehensive and fully integrated wellness services, not only for their clients but also for other stakeholders, like client families and program staff. 

Currently, four Tipping Point Community partners participate in The Wellness Program: JobTrain, CollegeTrack, Aspire’s East Palo Alto Charter School and Aspire’s East Palo Alto Phoenix Academy. The Stanford Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences embeds mental health providers and ancillary program staff at each organization. These professionals, which include Wellness Educators, offer a number of direct services, such as wellness practice (skill-building), mental health consultation and psychoeducational training/intervention. They improve access to wellness resources and coordinate internal and external mental health services. The Wellness Program also focuses on organizational wellness (e.g. staff self-care) and bolsters each organization’s capacity to respond to distress." 

The Presence Restorative Justice (RJ) Lab Partnership leverages the decade plus community and campus Restorative Justice teaching and practice of the Presence team to support the human, equitable and inclusive experience of medicine by supporting the Stanford Early Life Stress and Pediatric Anxiety Program (ELSPAP)-Tipping Point Community Wellness Program
