Areas of Focus
Mathewson Early Prevention Program (MEPP)
In 2016, TYR initiated the Mathewson Early Prevention Program (MEPP), a research driven, solutions-based framework for students in grades preK-12. This longitudinal, multi-million-dollar initiative will be launched across the Washoe County School District and will help identify best practices for prevention, intervention, and recovery. For students who need a more comprehensive support system during their recovery, TYR was instrumental in revitalizing the national Association of Recovery Schools (ARS), which creates, maintains, and accredits recovery high schools throughout our nation. By focusing on students in the preK-12 sector, we believe we can make a significant difference in a child’s long-term development towards a healthier, happier future.
