WV TIME4K program set to expand

The Marshall University Trauma-Informed Mindfulness Engagement for Kids, or WV TIME4K, has recently expanded to four new schools in Cabell and Wayne counties.

In just the second year, the program focuses on bringing evidenced-based, mindful strategies to elementary school students who have been affected by the opioid epidemic and are struggling with emotional regulation. What’s that mean? Social work students participating in the program use a variety of activities, such as breathing exercises, movement, meditation and creative expression, to help children build awareness of their own emotions and identify ways they can calm themselves when they are upset or overwhelmed.
