SCoRE® (Student Curriculum on Resilience Education), LEAD’s cornerstone project, is a digital resilience curriculum which provides a unique educational opportunity to promote the mental and emotional health of young people. The program helps develop resilience skills by covering topics such as stress management, building positive support networks, self-care and goal setting all while emphasizing the unique experience of first-year college students. High School seniors and first year college students are the focus of this information as they prepare for the transition to college.
SCoRE exists in 3 versions: Instructor-led; Self-paced; and Propel for those seeking disability services (i.e. students with autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, social anxiety disorders, and related developmental disorders).
All versions of SCoRE help develop self-awareness as students complete a series of surveys and questionnaires, then receive immediate feedback in the form of personalized reports such as “My Responses to Stress,” “My Thinking Style,” and “My Self Attitudes” to name a few.
“At Mount Saint Mary’s University we’ve used SCoRE as part of our training process for our peer health educators for the past two years. Compared to previous training, we found it helped improve our peers’ skills in writing SMART goals and instructing the students they work with one-on-one in developing realistic goals. Additionally, SCoRE has given our peers a toolbox of stress management and self-care techniques to draw from, not only for themselves, but for the students they work with as well.
We feel SCoRE is such a valuable program that we’ve incorporated it into our pilot resilience program called Certified Resilient. Completing SCoRE is the first step to becoming Certified Resilient, followed by attending 4-on campus workshops on wellness, and lastly teaching what they learned to others through an on campus presentation or service project.
We will continue to use SCoRE because of its excellent content and flexible presentation for our busy students.”

“Student mental health continues to be a topic of concern for higher education. SCoRE provides a proactive, comprehensive, turnkey solution for promoting skill sets which lead to positive mental health. Our campus has successfully implemented the curriculum with all first year students in their required first year experience course for the past five years. Our longitudinal impact data is promising.”

“Research has shown us that when people are afraid to fail they will not take risks. You want a work force that is ‘willing to think outside of the box,’ especially in the field of human services. When we provide an opportunity to our work force of young professionals the chance to learn resiliency skills, we are not only cultivating a stronger, healthier, and vibrant work environment for our employees but for the mental health community in which we all serve. Thank you SCoRE.”
