4 What’s Next is a primary prevention program that builds psychological resiliency in high school students by giving them the tools to handle stress and distressnow and in their future. The core of the program is the 4 What’s Next Framework, which teaches students how to effectively handle distress by “reaching in” and utilizing independent 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.
Further instructions are included in the application.
