Space Between

Space Between envisions thriving school communities. Our mission is to bring the research-based practices of mindfulness, breathing, and yoga to children, teens, educators, and families in Washington. When implemented with a community approach, mindfulness tools promote attention, regulation, compassion, stress reduction, well-being, and resilience. Space Between was formed in 2016 to address the increasingly complex, stressful environments in schools for both students and educators. Recent studies clearly show that children and teens are experiencing unprecedented levels of stress and anxiety. Youth mental health issues and disorders are rising, including anxiety, depression, conduct disorders, and more - these issues effect children across socio-economic classes, race, environment, and other factors, although people who are marginalized because of their identity or have experienced trauma are more at risk. We know that poor well-being during childhood is directly linked to physical and mental health issues, substance abuse, and incarceration. At the same time, our teachers are experiencing high levels of stress. Teachers today are expected to do more than teach academic lessons; they support students with emotional and social needs and address challenging behaviors more than ever before. A recent study from the University of Missouri reported that 93 percent of elementary school teachers indicate a high degree of stress in their jobs and approximately 50 percent of teachers leave the profession within their first five years of teaching. When teacher stress is high, student well-being and achievement declines, according to numerous studies.
