Mental advocate founder of Triumph Steps and co-founder of Healthy Connections, CMHC, Beatriz Martinez, offers a youth-centric solution to bring emotional literacy to schools and help kids overcome challenges as they get ready for a new school year.

Beatriz Martinez and her team at Healthy Connections and Triumph Steps are not resting on their oars of bringing awareness to mental health challenges and delivering services catered to youth in helping to bring emotional literacy to schools and after-school programs. The solutions offered by the eight-step therapeutic framework of Triumph Steps have become increasingly popular in recent times, especially now that children are returning to school.  

Mental health remains one of the major challenges millions of people face in different parts of the world. Unfortunately, the number of children seeking mental health has continued to increase, and suicide is the second leading cause of death among people aged 10-34. Now, mental resilience is more important than ever, especially for children.

All Healthy Connections clinicians and certified coaches of Triumph Steps are looking to help children overcome emotional challenges, particularly with the pandemic seemingly worsening the situation and requiring parents to pay closer attention to their children’s mental wellbeing. The goal of Triumph Steps is to integrate emotional literacy into the educational system, to reduce the statistics that show that about 17% of youth ages 6 to 17 years old experience mental health issues.

Healthy Connections offers goal-oriented services that teach children how to develop the correct thought patterns from the beginning of life, ultimately helping them reduce any limiting thoughts and inspiring them to create the extraordinary life they deserve.
