SAFEMinds helps school communities apply the NIP it in the bud! (Notice, Inquire, Plan) early intervention approach using a range of tip sheets, mapping tools, individual plans, brief intervention kits and supporting resources within the NIP it in the bud! Toolkit.

It is highly recommended that local decision makers within the school become ‘Champions’ in the implementation of the NIP it in the bud! Toolkit and SAFEMinds Online materials by attending a SAFEMinds: In Practice training.
