Description of Resource: This guide provides mentors with recommendations and resources to help them support youth who have faced experiences with violence or trauma. Topics addressed include helping youth process their emotions, ask for help, and channel uncertain feelings into positive action. The resource includes information on a mentor’s role in these conversations, how to communicate effectively about these topics, ways to provide support, and strategies for building facilitating group and community conversations about violence and trauma.

Goals: To equip mentors with a framework for discussing violence and trauma with young people.

Additional Information: MENTOR: The National Mentoring Partnership (MENTOR) developed this brief in collaboration with the Mental Health Association (MHA) of New York, with support from JPMorgan Chase as a part of its efforts to expand opportunities for young people through programs like The Fellowship Initiative (TFI).
