Health and Wellness
Day One RAPP is committed to providing continuous support to the school community
during school closures. Alongside our Department of Education colleagues, we are doing our best to adapt to remote services, which includes our individual/group counseling, prevention workshops, and peer leadership. In the case that we are unable to provide care remotely, we will refer students and staff to appropriate resources. We will provide a comprehensive, vetted resource guide for RAPP related services within the next week for students, parents, and school partners.
The following is the latest information on Day One’s remote services for the Relationship Abuse Prevention Program (RAPP):
As the situation unfolds, our protocol and practices around providing counseling is subject to change. For now, RAPP Coordinators can provide limited check-ins with students who received RAPP counseling at the time of the school closures. Check-ins with students can be conducted over Zoom (video conference), phone, email, or text. Remote check-ins and counseling may not be appropriate for individuals actively involved in an abusive relationship, and RAPP Coordinators will assess and plan for safety before providing services remotely. We can provide consultation to teachers and parents as well as assessment,
immediate safety planning and appropriate referrals to students.
We are currently working on adapting our prevention workshops to online learning platforms for remote learning. We will update you as web-based workshops become available for Healthy Relationships, Consent and Coercion, and Intimate Partner Violence.
Peer Leadership and Summer Peer Leadership Institute
We have suspended the planning, interviews and acceptance to Day One’s Summer Peer Leadership Institute (SPLI) until April 20th and will provide updates on SPLI at that time.
Peer leaders are encouraged to stay connected to each other and Day One by following @dayoneny and @eaglerapp on Instagram. @Eaglerapp is hosting daily Instagram Live chats on staying healthy and connected during school closure. If peer leaders are interested in contributing to remote RAPP learning, they should reach out to their RAPP Coordinator.
Your RAPP Coordinator is working normal school hours, and can respond to your
messages during those times. If you are in an abusive relationship or seeking support in
navigating a harmful relationship, your RAPP Coordinator can work with you to develop
a safety plan remotely. This will include assessing which remote technology is safest for
you to use to communicate with your Coordinator. Your RAPP Coordinator is not able to respond to you outside of school hours, and if you are experiencing a safety concern or mental health crisis after school hours (8:30am - 4:30pm) we encourage you to reach out to
