Emotional Vaccines® is a Tampa-based organization that provides adults and children with science-backed coping skills before these issues become more serious.

Bolstering their emotional health and coping strategies extends beyond the classroom and helps foster positive outcomes and behavior at home,” said Rahul N. Mehra, founder of Emotional Vaccines® and board-certified child, adolescent and adult psychiatrist. “This partnership will provide free access to emotional support with researched-backed coping skills and resilience strategies without charging monthly subscriptions or requiring confusing apps.”

Dubbed “Mondays with Mehra,” the weekly offering will provide ELC teachers and parents with free access to Emotional Vaccines’ video content on managing stress, regulating emotions, and avoiding burnout. Videos will be accessible via QR codes on posters placed in every ELC center. The content library will continue building over the weeks ahead.
