The 4 What’s Next program is comprised of 5 learning modules and is delivered by one or more adult facilitators. Over the course of these modules, students will understand what distress looks like for them and develop or strengthen an internal locus of control related to their mental health and emotional wellbeing. They will gain skills for psychological resiliency such as self-advocacy, coping, and help-seeking and learn how to apply these skills to better manage conflict, time, and money as examples:

  • 5 learning modules, each 30 minutes in length – modules can be extended to include more student engagement
  • Modules can be delivered individually over time or in a half day workshop
  • Ideal student to facilitator ratio is 15:1 and no more than 30:1 is suggested
  • Suitable for a range of implementation settings including classes, peer leader organizations, youth service agencies, school clubs, youth groups, sports teams, etc.
  • Adaptable curriculum to meet the needs of special populations
  • Brief, confidential surveys assessing program effectiveness
  • Accessible program fee


A standard license is just $500 and allows for unlimited use of the 4 What’s Next program for one year at a single implementation site. Some circumstances may require or qualify for a custom licensing fee.
