The importance of mental health and personal wellness in the lives of migratory students led iSOSY to create several resources that educate and encourage those students, their families, and their service providers. The resources include five lessons focused on mental health, an in-depth look at the role of ACEs (Adverse Childhood Experiences) in the migratory community, state-specific resource sheets, and an entire Personal Wellness Training Package.
