Mental Health Services Featuring EmpowerU 

Increase Student Motivation, Mental Well-being & Success

Resilience cannot simply be taught — it must be learned through application. EmpowerU, Catapult Learning’s newest mental health service, provides evidence-based programs for students, educators, and families that improve motivation, resilience, and well-being. Programs are offered at the Tier 1 and Tier 2 levels of support with flexible delivery options that help districts expand their capacity to support their community’s needs.  

Science-based and outcome-driven, EmpowerU’s unique approach blends technology with personalized support, including embedded 1:1 coaching at the Tier 2 level. Programs are easy to implement, engaging, and drive measurable results. 93% of students who complete EmpowerU report increased confidence and well-being. 

The EmpowerU Difference

Student-Centered Approach  

The EmpowerU difference hinges on a person-centered philosophy. Unlike most mental wellness programs that merely teach key concepts, EmpowerU is centered around each individual. When enrolled in EmpowerU, individuals set their own personal goals and then apply the acquired skills they learn toward achieving those goals. This personalized approach fosters evidence-based growth, and it’s proven to work!

Force Multiplier for Staff 

EmpowerU delivers counselors and teachers an evidence-based, turnkey, manageable system without overburdening them with another tool to learn and implement. Staffing shortages only exacerbate the mental health crisis nationwide, but EmpowerU enables schools to reach every student without needing more hires or extra work for current staff. The average ROI for each $1 invested in EmpowerU is 18X.

Increased Resilience Drives Academic Gains   

Mental well-being is not just about emotions. Improving mindset is directly correlated to an ability to thrive. EmpowerU enables students to reframe their Inner Critic thoughts into Inner Coach thoughts – helping them feel better and do better quickly. In fact, 90% of students make significant pre to post progress on meeting personal, social, emotional, and academic goals.

Real Stories, Proven Results

If there’s no data or measured student change because of your mental health and well-being programs, then what’s the point? You should expect and receive data on individual student growth and overall impact for every program your district invests in. EmpowerU is no different. We’re proud to share success stories highlighting the transformative growth seen in our partner districts. 

Solutions for Your Whole Community

Drive measured outcomes with student centered instruction 

EmpowerU’s universal classroom lessons go beyond teaching students vital concepts; they help students apply these concepts to their goals. With options for both teacher-led classroom plug-and-play lessons (K-12) and independent digital online student lessons (6-12), students learn to manage thoughts, emotions, and behaviors so they are ready to engage, learn, and create positive personal change.

Reach more students more quickly with better results

As soaring behavior and mental health needs outpace school capacity to meet them, districts need a partner they can trust to deliver effective support. EmpowerU Tier 2 programs are designed for students struggling with non-academic barriers to success, providing the personalized 1:1 support they need to fuel improvements in confidence, motivation, and success.

Improve educator wellbeing, engagement, and retention  

This self-paced program is tailored to support educators in enhancing their wellbeing and rekindling their sense of purpose and commitment to work. Designed with the busy lives of educators in mind, this course provides practical tools for promoting resilience, modeling pro-social behaviors, and fostering classroom success. Participants benefit from personalized guidance from a 1:1 online instructor, facilitating daily connections between course content and individual goals.

Increase calm and communication at home 

EmpowerU’s family engagement program helps school districts and childcare programs equip families with a structured resilience program that boosts self-regulation, coping skills, and calm. Families complete lessons together at home, learning valuable skills to improve behavior and establish healthy communication.
